    Recently picked up a bag of Taylor Farms mix… mind you, I never found myself to be the biggest fan of kale, but this recipe made me change my mind. Initially thought the flavors would be too similar with more hearty ingredients like the squash and persimmon, but the pomegranate pulp helped cut right through that. Definitely going to make this again.
