Kale & Pomegranate Salad

This past weekend, out at the farm, I performed a demo of kale recipes to the members at the market.  I hadn't really decided exactly what dish I'd be creating, but knew I wanted to utilize all seasonal produce.  Items like kale, pomegranates, and cranberries were on my mind, and I was very happy with the results!
