Meatless Monday: Citrus Kale Salad

By: Kelly - Nosh and Nourish

I came up with a DELICIOUS kale salad, perfect for this time of year: Citrus Kale Salad.

This really was so refreshing and tasty! Besides the health-appeal of this salad, the other thing that makes it so special is that it keeps super well.  It does NOT get wilted like other types of lettuce and spinach in salads.  The kale stays crisp and bouncy.  This salad was just as good 3 days later as it was on its original debut.
