Kale and Chard Salad With Pomegranates and Hazelnuts

Go Green This Thanksgiving With a Jewel-Toned Salad

A confession: after an entire season of eating Summer salads, lettuce leaves are feeling a bit tired and passé. So lately, I've been utilizing a bevy of nutrient-rich Winter greens instead. Inspired by the raw and sweet crunch of a brussels sprouts and kale dish, I tossed together medley of red swiss chard, young kale, toasted hazelnuts, and jewel-like pomegranate seeds. With a natural sweetness and plenty of pleasing crunch, it's my new favorite salad — and sure to be a hit on this year's Thanksgiving table. For a different Fall salad, keep reading.
