This Goat Cheese & Pomegranate Kale Salad meets somewhere in the middle of summer and fall, which is exactly where I feel like my brain is located. With the warm weather, it feels like the height of summer but with back to school, Halloween decorations popping up everywhere and the close of fashion week, things are feeling more autumnal every day. My cooking time is very limited but when I can squeeze in making something healthy this is my go-to. As soon as Z shuts her eyes for the night I dash into the kitchen to prep this for the next day.
I love apples in my salads (especially with goat cheese!) but there’s nothing more off putting than a stack of brown fruit embedded in kale. That’s why I recently made it my mission to find out how to keep them from browning. Just mix 1 cup of water with ¼ teaspoon of salt, until the salt dissolves, and then toss in the apples for 3-4 minutes. After they’ve had a thorough soak, place them in a strainer and rinse! Pretty easy, right? As a frequent sliced apple consumer this tip was life changing. Bye, bye yucky brown apples! Do you have a kitchen trick I should know about? Tell me in the comments below.
