Not to mention, this super simple lemon vinaigrette is zesty and delish. Highly recommend mixing it in a small mason jar so that you can store the leftovers for later. Trust me, you’re gonna want to put this on all the salads. All of them.

Lemon Vinaigrette Dressing:
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice (fresh squeezed preferred)
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon dijon mustard
pinch of salt & pepper

Salad ingredients:
3-4 cups kale (stemmed and chopped)
1/4 cup thin sliced onion
1/4 cup sliced almonds
3-4 fresh strawberries (rinsed and sliced thin)

Directions:
Combine vinaigrette ingredients in a small jar with lid and shake until well combined (or whisk in a small bowl) – set aside. Place stemmed and chopped kale into a large bowl and drizzle with about 2-3 tablespoons vinaigrette. Use your hands to massage the dressing on the kale til kale is softened and darker in color. Add remaining salad ingredients and toss lightly – adding extra vinaigrette as desired. Enjoy!

    That salad looks amazing! I have made it with spinach before but have never seen a recipe with kale. I’ll have to give it a try sometime!! Where do you buy your produce? Do you use organic?

      Thank you! It’s a great way to use kale. You can add other salad fixins too if you’d like. We alternate between a few local grocers and our farmers market and try to buy mostly organic. :)
