Baby Kale Salad with Blood Orange and Fennel
Have you seen this gorgeous stuff in your green grocers or supermarket?
Its baby kale
The taste is much milder and the leaves are much softer than regular bunch kale, making it perfect for salads and making it no longer necessary to massage your kale before eating it raw!
This salad came about from wanting something quick, easy and not too heavy to serve alongside our pan-fried flathead after finishing a yoga class at 8pm
When eating that late at night you don’t want a heavy meal – this was perfect – light, tasty, crunchy and delicious!
