Blueberry Kale Salad with Pine Nuts

Summertime means salad time! And I love adding nuts and fruit to my salads!  This week, I concocted a nice quick fix salad that I thought I would share with you.

I am a big fan of kale.  I can honestly say I crave it.  I was so happy when the Monash University researchers tested it and found it to be low FODMAP.  Kale is rich in calcium, antioxidants, Vitamin K, A and C and manganese.  I particularly enjoy baby kale! Kale Salad Ingredients

For this recipe, I toasted some pine nuts in a skillet, washed up the baby kale and blueberries and whipped up a lemon mustard dressing.
