1/4 cup dried goji berries
1 large bunch kale
2 tsp. pomegranate molasses (or substitute 100% pomegranate concentrate)
1 small orange, juiced
2 Tbs. grapeseed or olive oil
1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts
1 small avocado, cubed
- In a small bowl, combine goji berries and just enough hot water to cover. Let stand for 15 minutes to soften. Drain well, pat dry and set aside.
- Remove stems and center ribs from kale. Chop leaves into small pieces and place in a large salad bowl. Combine kumquats, pomegranate molasses, orange juice, and oil in a blender; purée until smooth, but small bits of kumquat remain visible.
- Pour dressing over kale leaves and mix well. Add soaked and drained goji berries, macadamia nuts and avocado cubes, and serve immediately.
