The ultimate winter salad.

Remember when I said that I'd be giving you recipes full of yummy seasonally appropriate produce?  Well here is about the most low maintenance one I could create that packs in a whopping five ingredients off our winter list.  This is a little bite of sunshine and vitality to distract you from the cold and gray world outside your window.  Easy to make and unbelievably satisfying, this salad should become a winter staple at your dinner table.

For this salad you will need:

Kale (just a lot, fill the bowl)
1 orange (I used a Cara Cara which is pink on the inside, you can use whatever you want)
1 grapefruit
1/2 small log of goat cheese (I used honey goat cheese because YUM)
1/2 cup walnuts

And for the dressing:

1/2 cup pomegranate juice
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Okay so in terms of assembling the salad, I'm confident that you don't need help.  The dressing however will need to be reduced and all that entails is putting the juice and vinegar in a saucepan on med heat and letting it simmer until you're left with about half as much liquid.  Let it cool completely and then pour it over your prepared salad.  It is so sweet and yummy and is really great against the bitterness of the mounds of kale.  Enjoy it as a side, or add some protein and make it your main.
