Kale Salad with Brussels Sprouts and Cranberries
This salad makes the perfect side to any meal or can be enjoyed on its own. Crunchy raw kale, creamy maple-mustard dressing, and tangy wild cranberries are combined for a flavourful, but ultra-simple dish. If you can’t get your hands on dried cranberries, simply dry regular cranberries in the oven on very low heat for a few hours. Enjoy!
