Add a little spunk to your wild rice kale salad with fresh asparagus and the sass of a light and flavorful apple cider dressing. You will love this medley of vegetables.
Wild rice is one of my favorite types of grains. I love the nutty flavor and the incredible health benefits such as high-fiber content. It’s rich in nutrients which offers sustained energy for our bodies. Of course, the main star of the salad is kale, which is still one of my favorite greens. Sometimes I find when I am eating out at a restaurant, the kale is very chewy and it’s hard to swallow. When I de-stem my kale and chop it into fine pieces, I then squeeze the juice of an entire lemon over it and massage the lemon into the kale leaves. This allows the kale to soften while giving an extra boost of nutrients to the salad.
I love making asparagus salads when they come into season. These little spears are actually packed with minerals, vitamins, protein, and fiber. If you have leftover salad dressing, pour it into a sealed container and it will last up to a week or more in the fridge. I love doubling up recipes because I know I’ll use it later!
