Did I say DIVINE!?

It is just that.

This is one delicious super healthy over the top wonderful salad. We made this last month at our Start Stimply Cooking Classes and it was a huge hit. The key to this salad is to toss the dressing in the greens first then add the grapefruit, pomegranate seeds, avocado and cheese. I like to layer the salad so you can see all the beautiful colors. Tossing the dressing first also softens the kale a bit. You can use field greens too if your not a fan of kale. BUT you should be! Kale is super healthy and delicious when prepared well. I blended kale, baby spinach and field greens for this salad.

Kale Salad with Grapefruit and Pomegranate

1 bunch kale, well-washed and cut into fine ribbons
1 ruby red grapefruit, supremed with juices reserved for dressing
1 pomegranate, seeds removed

1 avocado chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons grapefruit juice (use an extra grapefruit or lemon juice if you don’t have enough)
generous pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup shaved Pecorino Romano or Parmesan

Place the kale in a large serving bowl. In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil into the citrus juice, and add the salt and pepper into the vinaigrette. Drizzle the dressing onto the kale, and spread the dressing with your fingers. The kale should wilt a bit. Check the salt level and add more if needed.

When you’re ready to serve, toss in the grapefruit and pomegranate , avocado and, using a peeler, shave Percorino Romano generously on top. Toss gently and serve.

The God Who Sees You

When life circumstances become overwhelming–your marriage is in trouble, unemployment has drained your resources, or your children choose not to honor God–it can take a toll on your heart. You may even begin to feel like God has disappeared, leaving you to face your troubles alone. Tammy Maltby faced these feelings in her own life, and found strength in knowing that God did see her, and does see her, and loves her for who she is. In The God Who Sees You, she encourages women to look to God when they feel discouraged, forgotten or invisible, and take comfort in the story of Hagar, another woman who faced difficult circumstances and overcame them knowing God’s presence was with her. The God Who Sees You also includes an 8-week Study Guide for group discussion.
