Strawberry Kale Salad

New year. New attitude. We made it through another year and to say 2020 was a doozy would be an understatement. As we enter this new year and reflect on all the holiday food traditions we indulged now is the perfect time to hit the reset button. No matter your New Year’s resolution, here’s a quick and healthful recipe from Give Me Some Oven that will have you saying kale, yeah!

Ingredients

Salad Ingredients:

  • 6 cups fresh baby kale (*or see note below for using other kinds of kale)
  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1–2 avocados, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 4 ounces crumbled goat cheese (or other soft cheese)
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • half a small red onion, thinly sliced
  • white balsamic vinaigrette (recipe below)

White Balsamic Vinaigrette Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 3–4 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly-cracked black pepper

Directions
