Cauliflower Kale Salad with Pomegranate, Dried Apricots and Pumpkin Seeds is healthy and delicious! It is perfect for lunch and is a great way to detox.
Winter vegetables are my favorite. Kale, cauliflower, beets and broccoli. I could eat them all every day and never get sick of them. With an abundance of fresh kale from my garden, I love enjoying it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I love this salad because it combines sautéed cauliflower “rice” with kale, pomegranate, dried apricots, pumpkin seeds and a few simple seasonings.
This salad is great to make ahead because it is still fresh and crunchy even after a few days. It is also a great detox salad and is the perfect salad for lunch during the week. One of my goals for 2015 is to prep meals ahead of time. So far, I’m really proud of myself. Each Sunday, I spend the afternoon prepping a few meals for the week. It makes life during the week so much easier.
In fact, I am trying to get ahead with other things too. Whether it is meal prep, work or blogging related, I feel so much more relaxed when I get things done ahead of time. I’m one of those people who packs my calendar with more than I should do, and always gets everything done even if it means little time for sleep or relaxing. In addition to getting things done ahead of time, I’m really trying to clear my calendar for more down time. I not only feel like I am able to get more done, but I am able to relax a little too. It’s fabulous.
Go ahead, grab a big bowl of this salad and dig in! If you want a little more protein, you could also layer the salad with grilled chicken breast.
