Kale pomegranate salad recipe takes just 15 min to prep! Serve pomegranate salad for Christmas or Thanksgiving, it’s gorgeous on the table.


  • 2 bunches lacinato (dinosaur) kale
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced and zested (about 2 tablespoons lemon juice)
  • 1 clove garlic, zested
  • 4 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1/8 tsp. salt 
  • pinch black pepper
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate arils


  1. Prepare ingredients: 
    Wash and dry kale. Remove stems and thinly slice. (Into really thin ribbons.)
    Whisk together lemon juice and zest, garlic, olive oil, honey, salt, and pepper until emulsified. 
  2. Toss dressing with kale and lightly massage until combined. Let sit for at least 15 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle feta cheese, walnuts, and pomegranate arils on top. 
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 


  • You can use dino (lacinato) or green (curly) kale. If you use green kale, let it sit with the dressing a little bit longer if possible! 
  • Pecans or your nut of choice can also be used.
