bloodorangesandkaleSomething about spring is making me crave salads.

(It makes me feel like an adult to say I’m craving salads and that I’m totally not lying to sound cool).bloodorangesol,¬†While kale salad never will be as good as, oh…. fried chicken, this one is crunchy and delicious with the raw fennel and olives. It’s an excellent combination.

I guess you could say: if you’re the kind of person who likes raw kale salads, this is a good one.
