Pecan and Pomegranate Chicken Salad

This Pomegranate Pecan Chicken Salad makes the perfect appetizer when stuffed into a lettuce leaf or nestled on top a nice fresh slice of cucumber. We love adding it to wraps with some lettuce for a fresh and flavourful lunch. Also a great addition to a brunch table, how about stuffing it into a croissant! Yum.

  • 2 large chicken breasts cooked and chopped
  • 8 ounces plain Greek yogurt (I use full fat)
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1/2 cup green apple chopped
  • 1/2 cup pecan halves roughly chopped
  • 3 green onions finely chopped
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp pure maple syrup (optional depending on how sweet you like it)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • lettuce leaves or cucumber discs to serve


  • In a large bowl combine the Greek yogurt with the dijon mustard and salt and pepper.
  • Add in the chopped chicken, pomegranate, apple, pecans and green onions and give it all a good stir until well combined.
  • Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Serve stuffed into a lettuce leaf or heaped on top of a cucumber disc.
