Kale is so delicious tossed in salads, plus its good for you. My Summer Kale Salad with apricots, almonds and Parmesan cheese is lightly dressed for a wonderful meal.
My favorite part about this kale salad is that the apricots and dressing add just the right amount of sweetness to the kale. For larger groups you can simply double or triple the recipe. Even non salad lovers will enjoy this dish!
