Spring Summer kale Salad

the perfect spring summer salad

Memorial weekend is here! I can’t believe it! Time flies! Let’s try a new recipe for this special occasion: The perfect kale salad

And, as always, with Memorial weekend also comes BBQs with families & friends, cocktails, by the pool, and the first ice creams of the year. I love it! It’s the perfect kick-off of the summer season!

As much as I love summer and everything that comes with it, I am aware that they are not necessarily the healthiest choice! And I know how difficult it is to resist all of it, especially when we are enjoying a good and deserved time with those we love and have not been able to see in such along.

That’s why today I want to share with you the perfect salad to accompany the festivities, this weekend and the rest of the summer!

It’s light, delicious, full of contrasts both in flavor and texture, and very easy to make, it will take you no time! So you can enjoy the moment knowing that at the same time you’re picking the healthy choice!

I hope you enjoy this perfect kale salad and happy Memorial Weekend!
