Kale Salad with Pomegranates, Apples and Walnuts

Let’s be honest, who overdid it on Valentine’s Day?  Too much chocolate? Or did you wait until the day after for the half price chocolate at the store? 

Come on, don’t be shy, you can tell the truth to me. :-)

It’s time to get skinny with recipes! Some contributors have lightened up their favorite meals and I’ve whipped up my newest obsession kale salads!

Kale Salad with Pomegranates, Apples and Walnuts

Kale has been my go to green in my salads in the last few months and truth be told, I think I prefer it better raw than cooked.  We all know kale’s nutritional benefits, I’m not going to bore you with that again, but the slightly bitter kale paired with different fruits is a lovely change from a traditional green salad.

  1. I’m kind of embarrassed to admit that while I love kale, I’ve never eaten it raw. Time to rectify that and I will start with your lovely salad. What a great combination of ingredients and the dijon/balsamic dressing sounds delicious!

  5. I’ve had so much cooked kale that is it refreshing to see it being used raw in a salad. It’s a great time of year for this salad too.

  7. I would definitely prefer this kale salad to the regular ol’ bag of greens. The dressing sounds lovely and I adore fruit in salads. I’m trying to get the Husband to come around to liking kale but i’m having a hard go at it. Maybe this recipe would change his mind!

  8. I’ve been struggling with the bitter kale but keeping it raw and adding the fruit is a great idea! And, if I eat this, it will negate that extra large box of Godiva Brian got me that is still very much around. Right??

  14. Is there also a spring mix in there? I like kale for its benefits but the waxy texture turns me off. I tend to mix it well with the spring greens and such. But this looks great :)

    Reply
    • No, I actually used a batch of mixed kale for this, but I think mixing in some spring mix would also be a great touch or even some arugula.

  15. I’ve been craving a salad like this for days. Now I just have to weather throught the snow, get to the store, buy some kale and make this salad. Simple enough right!
