  1. First massage your kale with a juice of one lemon, a little salt and pepper. Massage the kale to break it down a bit so it’s easier to digest.

  3. On another baking sheet with parchment paper, slice up your apples and spray with avocado oil or toss in a tsp of melted coconut oil. Pop in oven for about 10 minutes to cook through.

  4. While veggies are roasting, make your dressing by combining all ingredients in a high speed blender.

  5. Pour dressing over kale and toss to combine. Add veggies and apples, then top with pomegranate seeds.

  6. Lastly, slice up your Chomps Cranberry Habanero Beef Sticks and toss onto the salad.

  7. Mix the salad together one last time and then enjoy!
