Updated: Feb 9, 2023

We all love food that has a bit of crunch. This warm winter salad will not disappoint. Topped with sweet & salty grain free seeded granola.

Kale is one of the most nutrient dense foods. High amount of vitamin K, which plays a role in blood clotting, bone metabolism, and regulating blood calcium levels.
