This Kale & Apple Salad was made using some tender fresh kale, along with sweet and delicious red apples. This autumn salad is so tasty, and it’s simple and easy to make. Besides the main two ingredients, it has dried cranberries, vegan feta cheese, and a delicious poppy seed dressing.
In addition to Whole Foods Market, Wegmans and Sprouts Farmers Market, I’ve found that Mom’s Organic Market also has an excellent selection of fruits and vegetables. You can discover many hard to find ingredients in their baking, fresh fruits and vegetables aisles. For some great kitchen essentials, check out the ones I use on my Shop Page.
