You can use any leftover chicken from homemade chicken soup to make this avocado pomegranate chicken salad. You can also grill the chicken, which will give your salad an extra touch of flavor. Mix it with avocado, mixed lettuces or baby spinach, colorful and juicy pomegranates, and a simple vinaigrette. I love using small pieces of blue cheese and croutons for texture. Serve with a glass of white wine or a light red wine and enjoy.
