Kale Apple Salad is a tangy and sweet salad that has a great balance of flavors | ahealthylifeforme.comWe had house guests a few weeks ago, friends that we have had for years that will come into town a few times a year.  Our boys are the same age so it is always a good time to catch up and the boys have a great time… being boys.  Let me just say lots of laundry is done when they leave.  How do boys get so dirty?

Anyway I was throwing together a quick dinner for everyone and my girlfriend stood looking in the fridge she asked “where is your salad dressing?”   I answered with a quick “I will whip one up real quick.”  She was like “wow, isn’t that hard?”

WHAT- no making vinaigrettes is simple.  AND so much more healthy and better for you than anything you will ever buy in a bottle or a pouch.

The salad is a dynomite healthy packed recipe.  Offering more omega-3’s, healthy fats, and antioxidants.  So not only is this salad quick to prepare {takes 10 minutes}, but it is delicious and healthy.

    Salad dressings are so easy to throw together and so much healthier too. This salad is beautiful, I love adding fruits to salads.

    Salad dressing is really easy, and my brother was surprised when there were limited choices of dressing in my fridge. He asked for an oil/vinegar dressing and I said “buddy, we can whip that up in two seconds!” I will admit, yours sounds waaaaay better, haha, and I love everything about this salad (including the apples!)
