Favorite Winter Salad - Kale salad

Kale salad is my favorite in Winter...

...I like it best with pomegranate and sunflower seeds.

This is my favorite recipe:

You need:

Kale
Pomegranate
Sunflower seeds
Onion
White vinegar
Olive oil 
Salt 
Pepper
Honey/ Agave Syrup 

The quantities really depend on your taste! Like, I love sweet dressings so I like to put lots of honey. My mum loves vinegar so she adds a lot more of it than I would ever do. Just try to your taste :) 

Cut the kale into small pieces and put into a bowl. Cut the onion into really small pieces. Blend them with honey, salt, pepper, olive oil and white vinegar (e.g. white wine vingear) and spread over the salad . 

Note: The salad will have to steep for 5-8 hours! So prepare in advance!

After 5-8 hours roast the sunflower seeds and peel your pomegranate. Then add the two ingredients to your salad and enjoy :)



To make this recipe even more attractive, think of the great health benefits of kale: its full of essential vitamins, like A, C and K as well as minerals like copper, potassium, iron, manganese and phosphorus. Furthermore, the fiber (5 grams in one cup) and sulfur in kale aid with digestion and liver health. Aaaaand Kale has actually more iron than beef! I could continue this list but I think you get the point already ;)

Enjoy, get healthy and let me know how you liked this salad!
Have a happy start into the week everyone!
