Ingredients

  • 5 oz. baby kale (about 4 cups)
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate arils (seeds)
  • 1/4 cup pepitas (green pumpkin seeds)
  • 2 -4 tablespoons feta
  • 3 teaspoons quality Dijon mustard
  • 3 teaspoons quality apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 medium shallot or whole small shallot (minced)
  • neutral oil or olive oil (a little less than 1/2 cup)
  • sea salt or kosher salt (to taste)
  • freshly ground pepper (to taste)

Instructions

  1. In a measuring cup with handle, mix the Dijon mustard and apple cider vinegar with a small whisk. Slowly add in the oil, a few drops at a time, whisking constantly. It helps to place a towel underneath the measuring cup! Ensure that you fully emulsify (dissolve the liquids and oil to smoothness) the oil before adding much more. Add enough oil to measure 1/2 cup total. Add in the minced shallot and stir.
  2. Add in a few pinches of salt and a bit of freshly ground pepper and taste (try dipping a piece of kale in the dressing for a more accurate taste than straight off a spoon). Adjust seasonings to taste.
  3. Divide the kale between two bowls and place half pomegranate seeds, half feta, and half pepitason each bowl of kale. Drizzle with dressing, to taste, and serve.
