Citrus and Kale Salad
This is an easy yummy salad. Wait, do I write that at the top of every salad I make… yes, yes I do. Because thats the way I like it. Easy. Quick. Tasty.
And I never get bored of the different combos you can throw together and neither should you! This one remind me of Italy. Im not even sure why, the citrus, the colours of the kale against the red… it is the perfect salad to have with a glass of organic white wine:) and pretend you are in Europe with the rest of the world right now holidaying!
