Not your typical Waldorf Chicken Salad

So for dinner today, I was looking through some recipes and came across a chicken Waldorf salad recipe and was pretty excited to try it. Apparently the 4 main ingredients are celery, lettuce,apple and walnuts, in other words CLAW! lol . I had 2 out of 4 CLAW but decided to do it anyways!

the veg:
1 red apple - cut into small cubes
3 celery sticks - sliced thinly
carrots - cut into small cubes
baby tomatoes - cut into halves
1 small shallot - chopped finely
handful of pine nuts
handful of pomegranate seeds
2 tablespoon of light mayonnaise
2 tablespoon of lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste - if needed

the chicken:
500g chicken thigh - diced
chopped garlic
olive oil
a little salt and pepper

1) Marinate the chicken,garlic,olive oil, salt and pepper for 30 minutes, dry grill and set aside. I decided to fry the garlic instead more taste instead of just adding it to the salad mix.

2) Marinate the cubed red apple with 1 spoon of mayonnaise and lemon juice, leave for 30 minutes aside

3) After 30 minutes, Mix all the chopped ingredients and the balance of 1 spoon mayonnaise together. Add salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!

It was everything you want in a salad! Fresh,crunchy,sweet,sour,juicy and to top it off, the garlic grilled chicken was mouthwatering! What do you think? ( :
