Sweet Honey Ginger Kale Salad

Yields One Serving with Dressing to Spare

This salad perfectly combines sweet fruits with fresh greens, so it's perfect to usher in spring.

Spring means lighter foods and brighter flavors.

Incorporating more greens is a sure way to get you feeling light and ready to bare your limbs in the coming months.  Because spring IS coming.

Oh, and I love this dressing and making a big batch to keep in your fridge isn't a bad idea at all; it's acidic and slightly sweet which balances out any bitterness in leafy greens.

1 tbsp raw unfiltered honey
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
