  7. In a large bowl, combine the collard greens, Brussels sprouts, apple, 4 ounces of finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, ½ cup of pecans, and 1 cup of pomegranate seeds.

  8. Add half the vinaigrette to the large bowl and gently toss to coat all the ingredients. Eat up, Mama!

  9. Keep the extra vinaigrette covered in the refrigerator for up to a week. Let the salad dressing come to room temperature before shaking and tossing with your greens. Your future self will thank you kindly.
