Pomegranate Chicken Salad

POMEGRANATE SEEDS!  Juicy, tart and the perfect addition to this chicken salad.  I went through a phase in high school when I loved the chicken salad sandwich at Arby’s.  I would drive through on the way from one water polo practice to the other during the summer.  What made it so good was the grapes.  They added that burst of flavor that made you feel like all that mayo wasn’t that bad for you.  Luckily now I have found that you can use greek yogurt instead of mayo or sour cream in most recipes and it makes it 10 times better for you.  In this recipe I use mostly greek yogurt with a little mayo.  Some dill and lemon give a great depth of flavor and the pomegranate seeds add the most amazing pop that keeps you wanting more.  You should probably serve this on a fresh multigrain bread to really make you feel like you are a health fanatic.  Did I mention this can be thrown together in no time?

    Looks tasty! I have a question… you mention ‘brown sugar’ in the directions but it’s not listed in the ingredients. Is it included in the recipe? If so, how much? Thank you! 🙂
