Kale Salad with POMS 1This might be the yummiest thing I’ve ever made! We’ve eaten it like 5 times in the past 7 days, which is crazy considering I only came up with it last week. Seriously, it’s that good! Pomegranates are in season for a such small window of time that every time it comes round I get giddy and hoard as many as I can get my hands on. They are so versatile and can used in a variety of ways. I love them on top of breakfast oats, soups, and especially in salads. They are incredibly healthful and contain a ton of antioxidants and other good for you vitamins and nutrients.

 

Here, I tossed them with raw lacinata kale, pine nuts, and a light lime vinaigrette. The result is a perfectly balanced salad. The kale is mild tasting thanks to a gentle massage, and the pomegranate seeds add bright crunchy bursts of sweet flavor that perfectly complements the tanginess of the citrus dressing. You could throw in some cooked quinoa or grilled chicken and you would have a  fantastic light meal.
