Winter Kale Salad

5.31.18

My winter kale salad is one of my favorite dishes to make. It’s the perfect side dish to add to a holiday party and makes a great dish to have with some added chicken for lunch or dinner during the busy work week! It’s made with kale, pomegranate seeds, grapes, creamy goat cheese, and slivered almonds for a little crunch!

For the past 10 years or so my mom has cooked an Italian feast for Christmas. I LOVE Italian food (her sauce is my FAV) but I like having some greens on the table to balance out all the pasta, meatballs, wine, and Christmas cookies. I’ve been making this winter kale salad for the last couple of years at Christmas and everyone has loved it! 

Winter Kale Salad

Ingredients

  • 4 cups de-stemmed kale
  • ½ cup almond slivers
  • ½ cup pomegranate seeds
  • ¼ cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 1 cup red grape (sliced into halves)
  • 1 avocado

Dressing:

  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper

Direction

  1. Massage kale with dressing and refrigerate for 5-10 mins.
  2. Combine the kale, pomegranate seeds, goat cheese, grapes, almonds, avocado, and toss well.
  3. Refrigerate prior to serving (tastes better cold). Enjoy!
