If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know how much I love massaged kale salads.
The flavor combinations are endless, and you can make kale salads savory or sweet.
This recipe falls into the latter category with the addition of pomegranate seeds and apple.
You can use any variety of apple that you like, but I prefer Pink Lady or Granny Smith in this salad.
It holds up well, so you can make it in advance and refrigerate it until ready to serve.
The festive colors are perfect for any holiday table.
