Kale Salad with Warm Cranberry Almond Vinaigrette
The South Arm Women Community Kitchen resumes after the spring break. For this kitchen, Michelle shared information on incorporating more protein into our diet.
In line with above, Michelle shared a salad with almond and feta cheese which is a good source of protein.
This healthy kale salad is topped with a warm cranberry almond vinaigrette. The sweetness from the honey and shallot balanced well with the sourness of the vinaigrette and cranberry and the saltiness of the feta cheese.
