Creamy Caesar Salad Dressing and Marinade

Today I am writing sitting on the corner of a hotel bed in Canada. The family travelled here for a work event, and Otto and I have the day to ourselves.

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.
