I find comfort foods are critical during these chilly, gloomy winter months in boosting my morale – but so are fresh fruits and vegetables. They remind me that sunnier days are coming! That’s why I love this Fennel, Cranberry, and Mint Kale Salad with Orange Honey Vinaigrette recipe!
This dish feels like the quintessential winter salad to me. It contains hearty, seasonal elements: fennel, cranberries, oranges. It’s brightly colored and full of vibrant flavor, helping to ease the winter blahs. And the mint adds a freshness that makes spring feel THAT much closer.
Chia seeds are pretty much amazing. How are such teensy little things jam-packed with so much fiber, antioxidants, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids? That I don’t know, but what I do know is that chia seed pudding is one of the best guilt-free desserts I’ve ever eaten.
