Pomegranate Kale Salad with Maple Dijon Vinaigrette

I was going to share this salad next week, but I love it so much that I couldn’t wait. It will be on our Thanksgiving table and it’s been on our dinner table 4 times in the last 2 weeks. It’s simple, pretty and the hearty kale leaves stand up to the dressing, so it lasts for days. It looks like a diva salad, but it isn’t!

This is also the official salad of the baby boom of fall 2014. My very first niece is expected to make her debut at the end of this week, a good friend is due next week and I know lots of other pregnant ladies. For my close friends, I like to bring a cute gift and food when we visit the baby. Something nourishing for mom and easy to dish out for quick meals. During the last baby boom of 2012, I made this Winter Wheatberry Salad which was a hit.

Feel free to play around with the toppings on the salad, too. Try adding pepitas, walnuts, feta, ricotta salata or goat cheese.

  1. Love this beauty of a salad! And aren’t you a good almost aunt and friend? I am sure all the new mamas in your life are going to be thrilled to have such a nourishing salad at the ready.

    • You’re sweet, Elizabeth 🙂 And a compliment from the Queen of lovely salads is one I’ll take any day!

  2. Let the baby boom begin! What a fun way to start the holidays 🙂 Also, this salad looks gorgeous. I have been on a huge kale + lemon salad kick lately and need to try this delicious vinaigrette!

  3. YES. i have some kale at home that I didn’t have plans for yet. This will be its destination. I’ll just have to get over the annoyance that is removing pomegranate seeds. Or just buy the over-priced arils on their own. decisions.

    • I feel you on the pomegranate seed removal process. I have a link in the ingredients to how I like to cut off the top flap and cut it into wedges. Then I remove them the seeds from the membrane under water to keep from getting everything pink! I hope this salad makes the process all worth it.
