    Wow!! I think I’ve just found my favourite saladLoveLoveSo beautiful.....I also used maple syrup in the dressing and my vegetables and chicken needed extra cooking time. Feta and toasted walnuts would also make a nice addition. Thanks for sharing a delicious recipe.

    Hi hlmckinfo. I always ensure that there are a few holes uncovered in the bottom of the varoma to allow maximum steam through and I give it a really good stir after about 10 minutes to ensure even cooking. Be sure not to overload it also. Hope thse tips help  tmrc_emoticons.) and as always.. happy cooking!

  • Do you put the vegetables in

    Submitted by hlmckinfo on 29. March 2014 - 00:12.

    Do you put the vegetables in the upper tray of the varoma? When I put them on top of the chicken, the chicken didn't cook through. Even after the full 23 minutes, the chicken chunks are still visibly raw.

    I've separated out most of the veg and am cooking the chicken for another 15 minutes. I always seem to struggle with the varoma! 

    Thanks very much...I hope this turns out ok in the end and I don't poison the family!

    Great combination of warm, cool and crunch.

    Loved this salad. Used maple syrup as I had no pomegranate molasses and was really lovely.

    Will be amazing I would imagine with the  pomegranate molasses.

    Thank you for sharing.

    I made this dish today, with no craisans and also replaced the pomegranet molasses with Silan (which is made of dates) and it was awesome.....

  • It was DELICIOUS! I couldn't

    Submitted by cuyuyi on 16. February 2013 - 15:52.

    It was DELICIOUS! I couldn't get the pomegranate molasses at the time, so I used pomegranate juice instead. I think it would have been too sweet for my taste with the molasses anyway...

    Thank you for this great easy recipe!

  • This was delicious!  I

    Submitted by Bec77 on 18. January 2013 - 10:51.

    This was delicious!  I couldn't find any pomegrante molasses in the local shops so I used some honey and balsamic vinegar as a substitute and added some feta I had sitting in the fridge to the salad. 

    Will def make again, not only did hubby and I enjoy it but a rare event took place in our house -for once, my vegetarian child didn't pick the meat out to leave on her plate and my carnivore son actually ate the salad!!  Amazing, thank you for sharing.
