Kale salads are everywhere these days but this one, which uses tender baby kale leaves, is particularly tasty. Studded with apple and pomegranate seeds, and drizzled with a tangy- sweet halva spread dressing, it brings together the best flavors of fall to the Rosh Hashanah table.

Serves 6-8

For the salad:
1 5 oz container of baby kale (about 6 cups)
1 small bulb fennel, halved, cored, and thinly sliced
1/2 cup fresh pomegranate seeds (from about half a pomegranate) 1 small Granny Smith apple, peeled, quartered, cored, and cut into thin wedges
1/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted 1/3 cup packed fresh mint leaves, torn or roughly chopped

For the dressing:
1/2 cup Brooklyn Sesame Halva Spread with Roasted Sesame Seeds 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 large garlic clove, pushed through a press
1/3 cup water, or more if needed
1/4 teaspoon salt, or more to taste
freshly ground black pepper

1. Whisk together the Halva Spread, lemon juice, cider vinegar, olive oil, garlic, 1/3 cup water, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and a generous amount of black pepper in a small bowl. Taste and add additional salt if desired. If the mixture is too thick (it should pour easily, but not look watery), whisk in more water, 1 tablespoon at a time until the desired consistency is reached. The dressing can be made up to 1 day in advance and stored, covered, in the fridge. If it thickens overnight, stir in a little more water.

2. Combine the kale, apple, fennel, pomegranate seeds, almonds, and mint leaves in a large bowl, and toss to combine. To serve: dived salad on to individual plates and drizzle with desired amount of dressing.
