Inspired by a local restaurant's truly inventive guacamole studded with pomegranate seeds, this chicken salad recipe is extremely simple to make since rotisserie chicken is used. I serve this salad on homemade tomato bread, which lends a delightful contrast in flavor and color, or on lettuce leaves. —Debra Keil, Owasso, Oklahoma
