Preparation

Prepare fresh pomegranate arils, if necessary.* Reserve 1 cup of the arils from fruit and set aside. (Refrigerate or freeze remaining arils for another use.) In a large bowl, combine chicken with salad dressing. Add carrots, bell pepper and arils. Toss with a fork. Season mixture with cayenne pepper to taste. Spread eight lettuce leaves on a flat work surface. Divide the chicken mixture on the lettuce leaves and top with cilantro. Roll lettuce leaves to encase the chicken filling. Place on plate seam side down. Serve this pomegranate recipe.

*To prepare fresh pomegranate arils, score 1 large POM Wonderful Pomegranate and place in a bowl of water.  Break open the pomegranate under water to free the arils (seed sacs).  The arils will sink to the bottom of the bowl and the membrane will float to the top.  Sieve and put the arils in a separate bowl.
