AIMEE'S HEALTHY CURRY CHICKEN SALAD

  • 3 chicken breasts cooked and cut into cube sizes (or rotisserie chicken; skin removed)
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup Cabot low-fat Greek Yogurt
  • 3 Tablespoons ground curry
  • 1/2 large Granny Smith apple, chopped
  • 1/2 cup celery, diced (with celery leaves)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • juice of one lime (optional)

Whip heavy cream just as you would for sweetened whipped cream, only add the curry as soft peaks start to form. In a separate, larger bowl, combine all ingredients, adding the whipped cream, last.  Gently stir all ingredients together with a spatula until well incorporated.  Add fresh squeezed lime juice to mixture, if desired.  Keep cold, and serve on a bed of lettuce or in sandwiches.  Enjoy!
