A fresh summer salad that is perfect for your next picnic, bbq or weekday meal! One of things I love about kale is how well it travels and keeps fresh after dressed. Even the next day in the fridge it is crisp and not wilted.

I used pecans but any nut will work beautifully. It adds a nice crunch and salty element to the salad.

There are many variations to the simple salad. You could add strawberries, grapes, clementines etc. If you haven’t had a kale and citrus salad before I recommend giving it a try!
