Kale and Cranberry Salad.

Need a quick, healthy meal option? I swear this takes only 15 minutes. I also promise your kids will like it. Just don’t tell ’em it’s healthy. Put it in a McDonalds bag and they’ll gobble it up.

4 cups pre-washed, hand-torn kale, stems removed
3 slices thick cut bacon, cooked and crumbled. Unless you eat all before you can put it in the salad like I always do.
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
1/4 cup red onion slices (big enough for the picky eaters to pull out)
1/8 cup your favorite nuts, optional

3 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon red wine
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste

1. Mix dressing ingredients and set aside.
2. Wash and dry kale, add all other ingredients.
3. Toss.
4. Enjoy.

Alternatives, switch out your favorite cheese. Add fresh blueberries or blackberries. Kale can be tart so be sure to compensate changes that balance the tart with sweetness.
