Nothing says I Love You on Valentine's Day than a huge heart symbol. And though my wiseass of a husband would always jokingly comment that “honey, you do know that a human heart looks more like a fist right?” to which I would then gleefully reply, “It looks like this right?” (showing him my clenched fist) and then add “Would you rather have this on your lip?”.Ahhhh, the joys of married life.

So for this Valentine's Day I plan to make a huge heart shaped salad topped off with fresh Pomegranate seeds.

Regardless of the constant banter I get from him, I know that it’s his way of indirectly telling me that he still loves and appreciates me. And the dish I am sharing with you guys now is a reminder that I also still love him as much as the day we met.

Your Ingredients:

4 skinless and boneless Chicken breasts

80 grams of Walnut

180 grams of Cheese

1 Beetroot

1 Pomegranate

5 Eggs

200 grams of Mayonnaise

Salt and pepper

How to make your Heart Shaped Chicken and Pomegranate Salad

First is to boil your chicken breasts in salted water until they are cooked.

Once done, take out all the meat then cut them into bite size pieces. Set aside for later (This will take around 15 to 20 minutes).

In another pot, also boil your Beets. Once done, peel, grate and set. aside for later (This takes around 30 to 45 minutes).

Now go boil your eggs and grate them once done. Set aside for later.

TIP:

To save time, boil your chicken breasts, beets and eggs at the same time in different pots.

Grate your cheese and set aside for later.

Now open up your Pomegranate and take out all the seeds. Set aside seeds for later.

Plating/Preparation/Serving

This dish has a total of 6 layers, and each layer must be seasoned with salt and pepper and must have a generous amount of mayonnaise on top.

Now in the event that you don’t have a heart shaped dish to use as a mold, just use whatever you have available – though that would totally void the name of the dish above.

You can also try to shape it by hand, and if you managed to come up with a shape that remotely resembles a heart, please share your method on the comment section below as I have tried doing it numerous times in futility.

Anyway, the layers for this dish are as follows:

1st (bottom) layer is your chicken

2nd layer are your grated eggs

3rd layer is your cheese

4th layer are your walnuts

5th layer are the grated beets

6th layer are the pomegranate seeds

Since Valentine is relatively close, I might try recommending this to some of my female friends, so that they can use it in wowing their VAL… But my question is this, can you mix the layer of yours have to be followed strictly?

Matt#2

Oh wow this looks fantastic! I Think this would be the perfect Valentines day surprise for my fiance! Any good side dish ideas to go along with this dish? And would this work with fish fillets?

tonythekid#3

Those pomegranate seeds really do have that certain red tint that is needed to make a convincing heart shaped dish. These layers look fantastic in presentation, and it seems as though the flavors would be quite good when mixed. I have never tried chicken and pomegranate in the same dish, but this recipe makes me want to try it out!

Tina Grant#4

This is absolutely beautiful and looks so much like a yummy desert instead of a healthy salad. I might have to run to the store and find some pomegranate to make this for my husband.

Farshad#5

This looks delicious. Im a bodybuilder and I’m always looking for creative ways to dress up bland proteins like chicken. Looks easy to prepare as well, not too many fancy or expensive ingredients!

Pri#6

All the recipes are so good here and thankfully, I found this one. The valentine day is already near and it would be a great idea to impress our loved ones. The pomegranate seeds used on the top makes it look really appealing.

Monaca Towa#7

Looks delicious, I am curious though as to how to shape the bottom. I tried the recipe and got the top in the heart shape but I struggled with the bottom. Thanks so much for sharing though!

Bryant #8

Wow , it does look good , but definetly takes a lot of effort. 6 total layers , after I make this , my wife would be super impressed . Just got to prepare this before valentines.

cmahay#9

Adding this to my valentines day menu :) The hubby loves Chicken salad, and this recipe looks delish! You don’t find many heart shaped appetizers, that actually taste good. I’m so excited to try this out.

shan#10

I surprised my partner to this amazing heart shaped chicken for our anniversary. It was when he least expected something so great that this chicken made me win his heart which I already own. I am so grateful for Chef Remi’s creativity which has also made people like me enjoy spending more time in the kitchen because it is guaranteed that you can never go wrong with these recipes…Thank you!!

Rachel weaver said: High quality knife holder!

I am so pleased with this knife holder! The magnetic part holds my knives very well. It is very durable and attractive. It is perfect solution for getting knives out of the way and reduce clutter. I love it.

Mandeejt said: This knife is amazing!!!

I have to say it was so nice to have a knife in my kitchen that is sharp!! I am used to using and buying very low end products because they are super cheap and some of the time they get the job done. This knife goes above and beyond any knife I have ever purchased. It can make super thin cuts. I have never been able to do that before. It is amazing!! I think every one needs a good set of knives in their kitchen. Please excuse me while I go to buy a whole set from here. Such a well designed product.

Sadie said: These herb scissors are a must have on the kitchen!!

I absolutely love these scissors! They make cutting herbs quick and easy. The 5 blades are so sharp and cut easily through everything I've tried so far. It also comes with a little comb like cleaning tool to clean between all 5 blades at once. I'm thrilled to have found this handy tool and will be purchasing more for Christmas gifts in the near future. Thank you Chf Remi!!

Deserae said: Kitchen Tongs Set (2 pcs)

This is the best set of tongs I have ever owned. They are very sturdy and balanced. They are made of high quality materials and have superior heat resistance. The pull stop on the ends is an awesome feature as opposed to the universal tongs with metal slide ring. I give these tongs 2 thumbs up and 5 stars. They are weighted perfectly and I would recommend these to any who cooks in their home or professionally.

Diane said: Great tongs. Dishwasher Safe!

2 tong set. Red silicone tips have a great grip. Love the pull stop to keep the tongs closed. Dishwasher safe is a great bonus to me.
