Colorful Chopped Asian Kale Salad

By: Isabel Smith, MS, RD, CDN

Delicious salads are refreshing and seasonal as we head into spring and summer. During the winter I find that foods that are warmer are more appealing, but as the temperature rises, I begin to crave cooler and crispier foods. I’m always trying to find new ways to jazz up my classic dishes, and this kale salad certainly did that. I love the Asian-inspired dressing on this salad and it’s easy to make, so give it a try! Just don’t forget to massage the kale leaves for best taste!
