Balsamic Kale and Strawberry Salad

Fresh Kale is full of vitamins and tastes good, what could be better right? Add delicious fruits and toasted almonds and balsamic vinegar honey dressing that's what. Try this Pretty Summer Salad for lunch or with dinner. Enjoy Good Food

Serves 6
What you Need:
To make Croutons:
2 slices whole grain bread, cut into 1/2-inch squares
Cooking spray
For Dressing:
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
For Salad:
1 bunch (8 oz) fresh kale, ribs removed, cut into bite-size pieces (6 cups)
1 can Mandarin oranges, drained
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
Handful of Raisins
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup toasted almonds(easy to make)Here's my recipe for toasting Almonds!

Heat oven to 400°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. Place bread pieces on cookie sheet; spray bread with cooking spray. Bake 8 to 12 minutes, turning halfway through, until toasted. Cool; use as croutons.
In large mixing bowl, beat vinegar, mustard, honey and pepper with whisk. Beat in olive oil; blend until smooth. Add kale and shallot; toss until kale is thoroughly coated. Gently mix in strawberries, oranges, raisins then top with croutons, toasted almonds, and Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
I really like kale in salad, it's better than plain lettuce and tasty
so I am finding more ways to eat and cook with kale
