Southwest Purple Kale Salad Recipe

This is the year I’m really excited about learning what I bring into my kitchen for meals. You would think being a gardener I’ve always been conscious of where my food comes from. My daughter makes up these awesome bowls of salad mix each week that we store in our refrigerator and use in recipes all week.  This week she went a little heavy on the new Purple Kale she discovered at the grocery store in the organic section.   I’m really looking forward to my kale maturing enough to harvest for salads.
