IMG_0171Can you believe I’m posting a salad recipe? How unlike me!! Between all the cookies and hot cocoa, I do occasionally make room in my tummy for some salad.


This Kale and Pomegranate Salad recipe is actually one I made for as a new contributor for the Caitlin Wilson Blog. You’ve probably seen some of Caitlin’s designs floating around Pinterest. I know that before she moved to Portland, I was in love with her pillows and pinned a lot of stuff from her portfolio. {She’s an interior designer, PS} Now that I’m a contributor, I gots da hookups to all the pillows I want. Mwahahaha.

ANYWAYS, I’m pretty sure we were destined to be friends. Plus her daughter is the same age as my daughter. #fate

Be sure to stop on by the Caitlin Wilson Blog to get this recipe in full and give me a little love 🙂

Have a great day, friends!

    I made this last year for Christmas dinner and was hoping to do so again this year but when I clicked my pin (and the link in your post) I get a notification that the page isn’t found. Can you please provide the recipe? TIA.
