Pinata Apples, pomegranate seeds and roasted hazelnuts over healthy kale with coconut and orange infused yogurt dressing.
In a small bowl, combine yogurt, coconut milk, apple cider vinegar, honey and orange zest. Slowly whisk olive oil into mixture, until thoroughly combined. Set aside.
Place ribbons of kale in a large bowl and add dressing. Using clean fingers, carefully massage the dressing into greens for 30 seconds to one minute. This will soften them a bit and work flavor of dressing throughout.
Add diced apple, pomegranate seeds and nuts to bowl and lightly toss. Serve with additional slices of Pinata apple alongside, and/or top with additional chopped hazelnuts, if preferred.
