Pomegranate Kale Salad
I was given this recipe by raw food chef Khepra Anu who is featured in The Healing Effect movie. For those of you who don’t know Khepra, he is the owner and raw food visionary behind Khepra’s Raw Food and Juice Bar restaurant in Washington DC. When I visited DC a few months ago, I ate at his joint every single day I was in town! I also brought all of my friends, so they’ve become regulars just like me!
Back to the salad: Straight up, this salad is BOMB. It’s the most flavorful salad experience I have ever had. The olive oil, lime juice and coconut nectar make an out-of-this-world sweet and tangy dressing. Then, as you dive into the greens, you’ll find pomegranate seeds exploding in your mouth with every delicious bite. Only nature can make something this good!
Just a little natural news about pomegranates: Did you know that pomegranates are powerful anti-oxidants with anti-cancer and immune supporting effects. Not only that, pomegranates lower cholesterol and blood pressure – plus they protect against depression and osteoporosis. Who knew that something so tasty could also be so amazing for you!
So let’s get to it y’all. Here are the ingredients:
- 2 pomegranates
- 1 medium red onion
- 1/2 cup of fresh thyme
- 1/2 fresh jalepeno or habenero pepper
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
- 1/4 cup coconut nectar
- sea salt to taste
METHOD: Open and squeeze pomegranates into bowl with cut up kale, letting pomegranate juice and seeds spread over kale. Add onion, pepper, thyme to food processor with S-blade and pulse a few times. (By the way, if you don’t have an S-blade, just dice the onion, pepper and thyme into tiny pieces. Anyway you cut it, it’s going to be delicious). Add mixture to kale along with remaining ingredients. Mix well, enjoy!
