- 1 chicken breast
- 1 red beet
- 1 large potato
- 2 medium carrots
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 yellow onion 1 Tablespoon of unsalted butter to sauté
- 1/4 cup walnuts
- 1 cup mayonnaise

I used a lunch sized plate. That may give you a sense on the size of salad for the amount of ingredients listed above.
First prepare all the ingredients before putting the salad together.
In a small pot filled with water, boil the chicken breast for 15- 20 minutes.
In a different pot boil 1 red beet, 1 large potato, and 2 medium carrots. Boil until vegetables are soft (15-20 minutes.)
In a a small pot boil eggs for 10 minutes, then put them in cold water. (This will help you peel them faster.)
Chop 1/2 a yellow onion. Sauté in a pan with 1 Tablespoon of unsalted butter until soft.
Mince a clove of garlic.
Chop or blend 1/4 cup of walnuts.
Break the pomegranate and take the seeds out.
After the boiled ingredients have cooked and cooled down, grate ingredients on a small-sized grater. Shred the chicken breast into small pieces. Put each ingredient separate from the others.
Putting the Pomegranate Wreath Salad together:
Place a cup upside down in the middle of a lunch plate.
Put shredded chicken on around the cup. Add a pinch of salt and a gently spread a tablespoon of mayonnaise.
Add grated carrots on top of the chicken. Spread 1 Tablespoon of mayonnaise gently.
Next, add the grated potato. A pinch of salt and pepper, and 1 Tablespoon of mayonnaise.
Sprinkle with 1/3 of the chopped walnuts.
Add half of grated beets, and half of the walnuts that are left.
Add the sautéd onions and minced garlic and another pinch of salt and pepper.
The rest of the chicken goes on top of the onion, plus a pinch of salt, pepper, and spread 1 Tablespoon of mayonnaise.
On top of that, add the shredded eggs. Then the rest of beets.
Spread 2-3 Tablespoon of mayonnaise to cover everything.
Carefully take out the cup.
Put pomegranate all over the cake.
