Healthy Kale Pomegranate Salad

Kale pomegranate salad

I’m a huge kale salad fan. Not only is kale super nutritious, but it’s also one of my favorite salad greens because leftovers don’t go to waste.

Kale is a heartier green, so it can last a few days in the fridge without getting soggy like typical salad greens.

What makes this kale pomegranate salad even more special? The beautiful pop of color and burst of fruitiness from the pomegranates. Slivered almonds give it a little crunch. We’re adding in coleslaw mix, but you could definitely chop up your own cabbage.

Our lemon maple dressing brings the whole salad together. The bit of sweetness from the pure maple syrup, paired with the tart lemon juice work so well together!

This kale pomegranate salad is one you’ll keep coming back to, over and over again.

Absolutely! Here’s what to do:

  • Chop your kale ahead of time.

  • Make your kale pomeagrante salad up to 2 days in advance, but don’t add the slivered almonds until the day you will be serving it.
