Kale Salad with Pomegranate Vinaigrette

Kale salad. It’s nearly impossible today to go to a restaurant or pre-made salad section of a grocery store without running into a kale salad. We now have the added gift of kale growing in our yard! We’ve taken advantage of this, and brought this nutrient-dense, leafy green with us to my parents’ house for Easter dinner. What we put together is pretty great, and it’s ridiculously easy to boot.

Even my dad, who does not like kale at all, liked this salad. Part of it is the freshness of real vegetables, but the other half is the salad dressing. Even if you can’t stand kale, make this pomegranate vinaigrette and keep it in the refrigerator for your weekly salads. It isn’t hard, and you’ll thank us later.
