Cut the chicken into long, thin strips. Make 4 cylinders with the cucumber slices in the center of each dish and carefully fill them with lettuce and chicken.

Prepare the dressing by squeezing a fork in a bowl of olive oil with pomegranate juice, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper in a bowl. Mix with the remaining ingredients and stir.

Pour it over the salad and serve.
