POMEGRANATE KALE SALAD

Kale chips are an easy sell in my house, but kale salad is a bit more challenging. I learned taking the time to massage the kale with olive oil is surely key to success — and really only takes a few minutes! The miso adds enough sodium, so just add some sweetness and nuts to balance the flavors along with an awesome nutritional zing!

Equipment

  • large salad bowl

Ingredients
  

  • 1 bunch kale washed, stems removed, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon white miso paste
  • 1 Tablespoon pomegranate molasses if you prefer, balsamic vinegar works well here too
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable broth
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Optional toppings: pomegranate seeds, dried cranberries, dried cherries, sliced almonds, chopped walnuts, chopped pecans, chickpeas

Instructions
 

  • Place the prepared kale in a large salad bowl. Add the olive oil, toss around with your hands and massage the leaves for 2–3 minutes. The leaves will actually start to shrink a bit, as your break down the tough fibers.
  • ​Whisk together the miso paste, pomegranate molasses, lemon juice, broth, and pepper, in a small bowl.Taste for any desired seasoning adjustments. Pour over the kale and toss well.
  • Add toppings of choice (ie. pomegranate seeds, dried cranberries, and sliced almonds) and some more freshly ground pepper. Makes 6 side-dish servings.

Any leftovers make a delicious lunch with some protein on top!
