14 Mar Kale Apple Salad
Another kale salad? Oh kale yeah!
Excuse my cheesiness, but I can never have enough kale salad recipes. Kale is a powerhouse food that you should incorporate into your diet at least a few times a week, but like anything else, if you don’t mix it up, you’ll get tired of the same old thing.
This recipe is not gluten-free, as it uses farro, but farro is an ancient grain with lower count of glutenous proteins and many health benefits, so if you’re not gluten-intolerant, it’s a great way to add protein, fiber and a plethora of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to a meal.
My favorite thing about this salad is the mix of textures. The farro is a little chewy, the pepitas are cruchy and the apples add a juicy freshness. I am a huge fan of sweet & salty combos too so I love the mix of fruits, veggies and grains in this one.
