Ingredients

  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • 3 pounds diced poached capon meat
  • 3 cups finely diced celery
  • 2 cups pomegranate seeds
  • 1 cup shelled pistachios, blanched and skinned
  • 1 1/2 cups fruity olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon aged balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano shavings, optional

Directions

Put raisins in a bowl and add warm water to cover. Soak until raisins are plumped, about 15 minutes. Drain and pat dry. 

In a large bowl, combine the capon, celery, pomegranate seeds, pistachio nuts, and soaked raisins; mix well. In a bowl, combine the olive oil and vinegars, whisking to emulsify. Pour over the salad and season with salt and pepper. Mound the capon salad on a serving platter. Top the salad with the Parmigiano-Reggiano shavings, if desired.
