“Wonder” Kale Salad

This salad is a “wonder” blend of veggies and fruits with an aged balsamic vinaigrette. This sounds fancy, but it is really simple. We had tried kale chips before and liked them and then we tried a kale salad at a friend’s house, so we decided we would make one at home. And for salad dressing, our friends gave our family a bottle of their favorite aged balsamic vinaigrette that they had brought home from Florida, and we tried it and liked it so we put it in our salad dressing.

  • 3 handfuls of Kale

Instruction for Salad:

  • First, add the kale into a pretty big bowl.  Break the kale into small pieces. Next, cut up about 1 cup of red cabbage. Make sure the cabbage is chopped nicely. Then peel and cut your carrots into coin size pieces, and add that to your bowl. Peel you clementine and separate it into slices. Cube your avocado into bite size pieces, and add that to the bowl. Cube your pear so that all the juices stay in and that it is bite size. Take a handful of cranberries and dice them, and then add them to the bowl as well. Sprinkle in the goat cheese. Then, to top it all off add in chopped pecans. Mix well.
