healthy dairy-free creamy kale salad recipe

This Creamy Kale Salad recipe here is one of my all-time favourites, and is seriously a crowd pleaser! Every time I make this I have people asking me for the recipe. It has the perfect combination of salty and tart-sweet.

This is also an awesome recipe because even though it’s a salad, it will keep in the fridge for a few days without wilting! Make it ahead of time and add it as a side dish for a few meals ahead, or a quick grab at lunch time. I hope you enjoy it as well!
