Kale Salad with Carrots, Apples & Goat Cheese

By DeAndrea Douglas
kale salad

This kale salad is tasty, filling, and perfect for a work-from-home lunch. The carrots add the right amount of crunch and the poppy seed dressing adds just enough sweetness to offset the bitterness of the kale. It’s good without the goat cheese, but the creamy tanginess of it gives it a little extra something. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can add raisins to this for another texture variation.
