Kale, Clementine and Feta Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing

Ingredients

Kale salad

Honey-Lime Dressing

Instructions

  1. First, make the dressing by whisking together all of the ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Prepare the kale by slicing out the stems and chopping out the leaves into small, bite-sized pieces. Transfer the kale to a big salad bowl. Sprinkle a small pinch of sea salt over the kale and massage the leaves with your hands by lightly scrunching big handfuls at a time, until the leaves are darker in color and fragrant.
  3. Drizzle salad dressing over the kale (you might not need all of the dressing) and toss well so the kale is lightly coated with dressing. Add the prepared avocado, pomegranate (or dried cranberries), clementines, radishes, cilantro and feta to the bowl.
  4. Toast the pepitas in a skillet over medium-low heat for a few minutes, stirring frequently, until they smell fragrant and toasty. Transfer the pepitas to the salad bowl. Toss the salad to combine and serve.

Notes

This salad takes cues from my recipe for Deb’s kale salad with apple, cranberries and pecans.
Storage suggestions: This salad should keep well in the refrigerator, covered, for a couple of days. For best results, add avocado just before serving.
Make it vegan: Skip the feta and use agave nectar for the dressing.
