Clearly, red,white, and blue are America's colors. While this Kale salad is red, white, and
blue green, I figured it was a cute play on words. Have you tried kale yet? If you haven't, you should. It is a super food! It is full of antioxidants, has a ton of fiber and vitamins and naturally detoxifies your body. It is great raw, but in this recipe you grill it! It gets super crunchy and nutty. Obviously that is our green. The red comes from thinly sliced red onion and nectarines. These are both super sweet and it is a nice contrast to the kale. And the white... of the white. It is my favorite salad accompaniment, goat cheese! The dressing of this salad is simple. Some luscious olive oil and tart balsamic.
This salad is literally a party in your mouth. Plus, it is so much more exciting than a regular ole salad. This would also be delicious and easy to serve to guests. I used a recipe from Bon Appetit magazine and changed it a bit. The recipe calls for ricotta, but I used goat cheese instead. Either would be delicious!
