It’s the time of year when you can’t seem to slow down or catch your breath and it’s perhaps during these moments when I search for more balance in the everyday meal. Between the holiday office parties, the school festivities and just getting together with friends, food and drinks are always at the helm of it all. This Kale Salad with Honey Pomegranate Dressing is not just another pretty salad, this one is loaded with flavor and nutrition so you can keep the good times rolling during any holiday season.
