Pomegranate Waldorf Salad

Another left over roasted chicken in the fridge {yes we eat that much chicken}.  What to do with this one?  Well instead of soup, why not a salad?  Better yet, it is holiday season and if I go back in memory to my childhood, I will recall my grandmothers {both named Betty} always making Waldorf salads and as a kid, I actually liked them.  Today’s recipe is just that…the Waldorf with a bit of a twist.


  • Roasted chicken
  • Apples
  • Pear
  • Celery
  • Greek Yogurt {Plain}
  • Sea Salt
  • Ground Pepper
  • Pomegranate
  • Fresh Lime {optional}

Simply remove the extra chicken from your left over carcass OR use chicken breast.  Shred the chicken, chop your apple, pear and celery and add all together in a bowl.  Spoon in your greek yogurt {this is in place of mayonnaise} add a dash of sea salt and ground pepper.  Mix and fold all ingredients together.  Cut your pomegranate in half, spoon out the seeds into a bowl {see my you tube video} and top with fresh pomegranate seeds.

Another easy and quick recipe that you can whip up after your workout or for a light dinner.  Better yet, serve this during the holiday season for your guests.  The pomegranate adds the color and if you want a bit of a kick, squeeze fresh lime.

Enjoy, Lynda

  1. This looks amazing! Never been a Waldorf fan but mostly because I don’t like celery, I might try this and leave out the celery, my daughter might like this 🙂
    I had one grandma that always baked from scratch and then another who didn’t cook at all…guess which one I take after, lol!

  2. My hubby hates celery also, but he let me have it in this today…If I could I would add celery to everything…Not sure why people don’t like it Melissa…I think it has a clean and crisp taste to it…I LOVE adding it to stirfry and smoothies 🙂

  3. Pomegranate! This is perfect as pomegranates are coming into season now.
