Christmas Kale Salad {Vegan + Gluten Free}

This Christmas Kale Salad {Vegan + Gluten Free} couldn't be more delicious!

Salads, such as this one, couldn't be easier. It's just chopping veggies, blending the dressing, and then tossing it all together. Of course any mixins you like, add them in. I kept it simple with shallots, apple, pecans, and pomegranate seeds. The hummus dressing is so flavorful and creamy, it'd make a delicious dip for all sorts of veggies.

Christmas Kale Salad
  • 1 large bunch kale, washed, dried, & thinly sliced/shaved
  • 1/2 small shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 apple, cored & diced
  • 1/2 cup freshly toasted pecans
  • pomegranate seeds, as desired
  • creamy hummus dressing, recipe below
