Curried Chicken Salad With Comice Pear and Pomegranate Seeds

Chunks of creamy comice pear contrast nicely with the crunch of cashews and pomegranate seeds. The salad can be composed a day or two in advance; for best flavor, add the nuts and pomegranate seeds just before serving.

1 cup low-fat mayonnaise

4 teaspoons curry powder

Freshly squeezed juice from 1 or 2 lemons (2 tablespoons)

2 tablespoons homemade or store-bought chutney

2 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves

4 cups (about 2 pounds) cooked, skinless white-meat chicken, cut into bite-size chunks

One 8-ounce comice pear, cored, then cut into 1/2-inch chunks

Salt and freshly ground pepper

1/2 cup roasted cashews

3 tablespoons pomegranate arils (seeds)

Mix mayonnaise with curry powder, lemon juice, chutney and cilantro leaves in a medium bowl.

Combine the chicken and pear in a serving bowl. Add the mayonnaise mixture and toss to coat evenly. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with the cashews and pomegranate seeds. Makes 8 servings.
