This recipe is also a crowd favorite and made quite the hit at my last potluck. Vegetarian, vegan, paleo – it’s endlessly friendly (unless there is a nut allergy) and would taste great with some pecorino cheese for the lactose tolerant.

Massaged Kale & Pomegranate Salad

10 ounce bag washed and cut kale
1/2 red onion, diced (about 1/2 a cup)
5 ounces pomegranate arils
3/4 cup pecans, crushed
1 apple, julienned
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
4 glugs avocado or olive oil
1 tsp. maple syrup
Big pinch Kosher salt
1 tsp. black pepper

Whisk the dressing ingredients (everything from the mustard down) in a small bowl. Add all the other ingredients to a large bowl. Combine, taking the time to massage the dressing into the kale and other salad ingredients so every leaf is coated.
