Pomegranate Apple Chicken Salad
It’s that time of year where the berries and fresh fruits are fading in quality fast and rising in price. That doesn’t mean we can’t shift and enjoy the few seasonal fruits that are in their prime though! Pomegranates and apples are at the top of that list and are at their peak right now. I still have a big box of apples from my tree that are getting used up on the regular for desserts like this Apple Cake or classic Apple Crisp. They are also great for savory meals like salads and this Pomegranate Apple Chicken Salad.
I love a good homemade chicken salad, but for some reason I don’t get around to making it very often. This BLT Chicken Salad is the perfect example of a recipe I adore, but haven’t made in awhile. That definitely needs to change though, because chicken salad is the perfect last minute meal for dinner and packs up wonderfully for lunch the next day.
I am truly obsessed with this Pomegranate Apple Chicken Salad. It’s a wonderful low-fat recipe that makes for a fantastically healthy meal and tastes AMAZING. The pomegranate seeds add an amazing crunch like a nut normally would but you get the health benefits and antioxidants of pomegranates. The apples are a nice tart crunch as well, paired with the creamy Greek yogurt and tender chicken. It’s the perfect balance of flavors.
