Kale salad with pomegranate

Kale salad with pomegranate

Last night I made lamb culotte with baked root vegetables (I can not recommend baked turnip) and this kale salad. The rest of the meal wasn’t very historical inspired but the salad was based of one I found in one of my books about medieval cooking. I thought I would share it with you because it turned out to be pretty yummy.


If you have an apple sitting around dice it and add it as well. I just didn’t have any. The kale had gone flat in the fridge so I only had one big leaf to work with but it turned out to be enough for the two of us.
