Yes, I know, who needs another kale salad? There are five zillion recipes out there already. But wait, and hear me out. I have five really, really good reasons to make this salad.
First, this one is really, really pretty. Bet you didn’t think that would be my first reason? It is so beautifully and festively colorful that it just begs to be noticed. “hello! I’m so pretty! (wave wave)” And once you notice it, you have to try it.
And then you discover that, second, it is really, really scrumptious! Earthy kale, creamy avocado, crunchy-juicy pomegranate seeds, and sweet tangerine are all highlighted by tangy Meyer lemon and salty Parmesan. Hello!?
Now you’ve tasted it and you realize, “Wow, this is not only amazingly tasty but I think it is actually really, really healthy, and I like it!” So that’s the third thing. It’s actually healthy. Yep. And you can serve it not only to your vegetarian friends, but also your gluten-free friends. So your guest list is [really, really] covered (that is #4).
