Falling head over heals for this…. Kale salad!

#KALEyeahhh!! This salad hits the spot on a beautiful fall day when you are craving something juicy, light and filling!

The highlights of this salad are the Kale, the Apples & Cranberries as well as the crunchy pecans! Oh and the dressing… don’t forget the dressing!! With the sweet and crunchy aspects in the salad you get a full flavor impact from the dressing that plays on the sweet with the balsamic vinegar and the Dijon mustard brings the sharp and strong flavor to balance out all the sweet. Yummm!

  • Handful of cherry tomatoes (sliced)
