Kale, cauliflower and pomegranate salad

Now you might feel that we have had a bit too much of the pomegranate variations, but we would not agree with that. It is a superb fruit and blending it with different kinds of vegetables can only turn out well!

The recipe this time is of a kale and cauliflower salad with pomegranate and feta cheese. A both beautiful and tasty mix.

The beautiful ingredients for the salad.

What you need:

  • 200 g kale
  • A whole head of cauliflower
  • 1 pomegranate
  • 100 g feta cheese
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Start by separating the haulm and the head from the cauliflower. However, make sure to save the haulm, it is really tasty after being fried, so no need to throw that away. Divide the cauliflower head into smaller bunches and add to an oven ramekin. After seasoning with salt and pepper and topping with coconut oil place it in the oven at just under 200 °C for 40 minutes.

Next, chop or rip the kale apart into smaller pieces and put in a bowl. Pick out the seeds from the pomegranate.

We made some really nice meat patties to go with the salad. As we have said before we prefer to just form the patties directly from the minced meat rather than adding spices, eggs or other things that supposedly should keep the patties together. In our opinion the patties stick together the best when not mixed with other ingredients.

This dish might possibly be something that would be better suited for the summer months rather than the winter. The salad had a really fresh and light feel to it much in contrast to the stews and soups that one associate with winter. But, there is also never a bad time for good food, so in addition to adding the combination of ingredients to a list of todos for next summer we really enjoyed the dinner, despite the cold outside.

Happy paleo,

Cecilia & Magnus
