Summer Salad + Dressings

Two weeks ago at the market, we sampled a kale and blueberry salad and taste tested some different homemade salad dressings.

One cup of cooked kale contains 1328% of your daily vitamin K and 354% of your daily vitamin A. Kale has anti-cancer and detoxifying properties. Kale contains over 45 different flavonoids, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Blueberries are similarly rich in antioxidants.

Additionally, many delicious salad dressings can be made from ingredients we already have in our cupboard and we hope these recipes inspire some salad dressing creativity!
