Holiday dishes don’t need to be heavy or overly salty or sugary to still be a treat. This vegan salad is an excellent (and easy to throw together) side dish for a larger meal or a stand-alone salad.
For the dressing: Whisk together fresh lemon juice, mustard, and olive oil.
For the salad: Roughly chop kale, add pomegranate seeds, mandarin slices, hemp seeds, and crushed walnuts. Top with salad dressing and add black pepper to taste.
