My three kids and I love kale so we are always experimenting with new ways to use it in the kitchen. I came up with the idea to add some sweetness, using dried cranberries and crunch with toasted pecans. Then all you need is to prepare a simple cider vinaigrette. This Kale Salad with Cider Vinaigrette is amazing, and it’s a great salad to accompany seafood, chicken or pork. Top it off with crumbled feta, goat cheese or even blue cheese. Oh, by the way, this also would make a great fall holiday recipe.
