Pomegranate, Kale, and Wild Rice Salad With Walnuts and Feta

0-879438116-006

Ingredients

  • For the salad
  • 1 c pomegranate seeds
  • 2 c chopped baby kale
  • 2 c cooked wild rice (you can use leftover rice or buy precooked)
  • 1/4 c toasted walnuts
  • 1/4 c feta cheese (or vegan feta)
  • For the dressing
  • 1/2 c minced onion or shallot
  • 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 2 tbsp. honey (or grade b maple syrup) 
  • 1/2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 squeeze lemon or orange juice

Instructions

  1. Prep the salad ingredients (chop, rinse, toast, etc). Chill the ingredients in the fridge while you’re making the dressing if you want a cold salad.2. Mince the shallot or onion and sauté in ½ tablespoons olive oil to reduce the bite. When soft and fragrant, remove from heat and transfer to a food processor. (If you want a stronger flavor for your dressing, skip the sauteing altogether. The shallot in particular works well for this.)3. Pulse the onions or shallot with the remaining olive oil, water, honey, apple cider vinegar, salt, and orange juice until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust. Add additional olive oil or water to keep the mixture moving through the food processor.4. Toss the salad ingredients together with the dressing just before serving. I prefer to serve this at room temperature or chilled slightly.
