Colorful Kale Salad

Kale salads are ALWAYS a good call. This one is fresh, summery, and colorful hence the creative name. πŸ˜‰

Radish was a great (secret) addition to this salad. If you’re not much of a radish fan try it in this salad anyway. The peppery, crunchy bite (and the hot pink hue) goes well against the kale and lemon.Β  Here’s 9 reasons to eat your radishes in case you needed nutritional encouragement. πŸ˜‰
