Kale, Shaved Fennel, Orange Salad with Pomegranates
This gorgeous salad is inspired from a "Cookie and Kate" https://cookieandkate.com recipe I have. This a nice variation from your run of the mill kale salads because of the brightly colored and super nutritious fruits and vegetables.
Cookie recipe calls for dried cranberries in her recipe but I substitute pomegranate seeds. Pomegranate seeds are in season and you should take advantage of them because they are considered one of the healthiest fruits on earth. Along with being high in fiber, Vitamins C and A, pomegranates are a powerful source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds.
The dressing is olive oil based and so be sure to use a high quality product. Check to be sure it is a single origin and traceable source. I like Ellora Farms Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It is 100% USDA Organic and really delicious. I don't use a lot of oil but when I do I want the best. You can order it on Amazon.
