I have a deep affection for kale. I eat it raw in salads, sauteed with veggies, in smoothies, alongside wild rice, when I’m sick, when my jeans are too tight, when it’s hot outside, and basically all other situations in life. I love me some kale. And with the warmer weather lately, I have been really into the combination of kale and apple. There is just something about having that little bit of sweetness alongside the earthy greens.
This is seriously a perfect summer salad. You have crisp greens, sweet apples, crunchy almonds, protein from quinoa, and the nice little tanginess from the honey mustard vinaigrette. It works for just about any meal of the day, and is super light and refreshing. You really need to get on this one.
This is probably the 10836548 recipe that involves kale on my blog, and it certainly won’t be the last. Kale is here to stay, folks.
