Raw kale salad with pomegranate and toasted walnuts

I was really excited when I saw this salad on the detox plan. I really loved the kale salad the first week and was sure this one would not disappoint. It was eh-good, but not the va-va-voom of the last kale salad. There was just too much raw kale taste with not enough flavor to the dressing. But a decent salad with indisputable health benefits, so I’ll give you the recipe and maybe someone out there will love it more than me.

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch kale, torn
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1/4 cup walnut pieces, toasted
  • 2 tablespoon red onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger, freshly grated
  • coarse salt and pepper

Place the kale, pomegranate, walnuts and red onion in a large bowl.

In a smaller bowl, whisk together olive oil, lime juice and ginger.

Pour over dry ingredients. Toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper.
