Kale and Broccoli Salad- New Salad Favorite!

I am so excited to share this recipe with you guys today! It is part of the monthly Recipe Swap that I am a part of, which I grow to love more and more every single month! It really gives me the chance to try some amazing recipes which I then get to share with you. This month I had The Cheerful Kitchen and chose to make their Kale and Broccoli Salad which I can guarantee you will become your new go-to salad for any event. 

Kale-Broccoli-Slaw

This Kale and Broccoli Salad is loaded with so many good-for- you foods, from the kale, broccoli and cabbage, to the pepitas that you sprinkle on top, it is a feel good dish that your friends will beg you to make for them again and again. I love that it makes such a big bowl too, there is more than enough to go around at a dinner party, or keep for yourself for lunches! It comes together in minutes and the dressing is  a perfect compliment with its slight acidity and tang…in fact I am already thinking of how well the dressing would go with a number of salad dishes I make. We took a couple of short cuts with this one, although you can shred the broccoli and cabbage yourself, I went for my go-to mix from my local grocery store. The nice thing with the mix that I use is that it also has carrots in it which add to the already beautiful colors in this salad.

Foodie Friday -Hearty Sausage and Kale Soup

I don’t know about you guys, but I have been in such a soup kind of mood lately! With it being the middle of winter, the cold grey days are starting to get to us. There is nothing like coming home to a quick soup that tastes like it has been simmering for hours.

This Hearty Sausage and Kale soup was created accidentally a few weeks ago when I realized I had taken nothing out for dinner but still wanted something loaded with flavour. Luckily for us we always seem to have at least one bunch of kale in our crisper, and since we make our own sausage, we always have some links in the freezer! So I grabbed some of the sausage, defrosted in super quick, and got to work on this yummy, flavour packed soup!

Enjoy <3
