It can be pretty easy to forget all about salads this time of year. It’s cold outside, produce isn’t as readily available, and the crunch of a salad isn’t always what we are craving. During these months, I like to reach for heartier greens like kale for my salads and add in seasonal ingredients. This simple kale salad makes a delicious side dish, base for a meal, or addition to a holiday table. For special occasions I splurge for the pine nuts in the recipe, but since they can be expensive feel free to use almonds, walnuts, pecans, or pumpkin seeds instead.
