Creamy Tahini Kale Salad with Pomegranate

Now that fall has arrived and winter is on the way, I usually need some extra motivation for sneaking fresh greens into my diet. With the colder weather, I tend to rely on warm, hearty dishes like pasta, chili, soup and curries and sometimes forget to eat salads!

However, now that the beautiful, amazing, nutrient-rich pomegranate is finally in season, this creamy kale salad is the perfect way to enjoy some raw veggies through the winter months.
