Kale and Apple Salad with Turkey

I recently signed up for a weekly CSA box from Full Circle and one of the first things I got was a bunch of kale. Now, I love kale, but I really didn’t feel like cooking it, so I made it into a salad. Plus, it was lunch time and I was hungry for something quick. I had also gotten some apples in my box, so I thought I would use those. I stopped at the store to pick up some sliced turkey, and then when I got home, my bottle of pomegranate molasses grabbed my eye. The dressing was delightfully sweet and tart and it went perfect with the kale and apples.
