Kale Salad with Beets, Avocado, and Goat Cheese

Kale and Beet Salad

The spring weather today has inspired me to create this colorful fresh kale salad! The combination of fresh crisp kale and beets against the creamy avocado and goat cheese just might be deadly!

This salad is the perfect pop of color to any table, whether it’s for lunch, dinner, or served as a side!

I mean look at these beets! It amazes me that something this beautiful can come from nature itself! Not only delicious raw, these Zebra beets are also fantastic roasted. image1 - Copy (3)
