Super Food Power Salad with Pomegranates

Chef V's recipe for power salad with pomegranate seeds

Before I share my yummy Super Food Salad with Pomegranates recipe with you, let me give you a little tip about preparing salads. When I feature kale as the main green in the salad, I’ll squeeze fresh lemon juice on it and let it sit a few minutes. The acid in the juice helps to soften and wilt the greens, making them a little tastier. (I think some people are turned off by kale because of the unpalatable texture of it; the lemon juice helps with this.)
