Instructions Checklist
  • Wash and shake off extra water from the kale. Remove the center ribs and stems; discard. Chop the leaves until fine but still a little leafy.

  • Combine the chopped kale, pomegranate seeds, sunflower seeds, and sliced almonds in a large bowl; toss to combine. Drizzle the rice vinegar, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil over the kale mixture while continuing to toss. Season with salt to serve.

Cook's Note:

Some great add-in options are: Parmesan cheese, currants or raisins, dill, chopped bacon, diced Kalamata olives, chopped green onion, chives, cubed apple, lemon juice, or orange zest. Serves well by itself or with crackers, toasted pitas, sandwich wraps (in place of lettuce), or tuna salad.

I liked the textures and flavors but the dressing to was too strong and too plentiful. I'll try it again with a more mellow bottled dressing. Read More

I love this salad! I love fresh kale! This salad has a nice bite and looks pretty in the serving bowl. The only reason i dont give it a five is because my family thought the vinegar was too much. Read More

I love this salad! I love kale and this is a great recipe for enjoying it raw. The dressing is very tasty. I used a mix of organic baby kales easy to prepare because I only had to open the bag. Seeding the pomegranate does take some time but you can by the seeds in a package so that could make prep faster. Very easy recipe very healthy and very delicious! Thank You! Read More

I tried this recipe tonight with the modification of 1 less Tablespoon of each type of vinegar. Still it was a little too much vinegar. Next time I will make it with 3 Tab. rice vinegar and 3 Tab. balsamic. Other than too much vinegar (and I love vinegar) this salad was very tasty and looked appealing too. I added some chopped avocado to mine which went very well. Read More

Suggest putting the dressing on and letting it sit for an hour or two before serving. The salad was much better the next day. Read More
