This Kale Salad is full of bright flavors and not only tastes great but is also so good for you. It would be beautiful on your Christmas table.
Today is a special day. Today is Bev’s SURPRISE virtual baby shower and we’re sending TWICE the love her way because she’s having TWO babies! If you haven’t had your coffee yet today, we’re talking twins! I am so, so, so thrilled for Bev. She’s going to be an absolutely amazing mom.
She makes mouth-watering food and is probably the most hilarious person I’ve ever met (although we haven’t met in real life — we need to fix that, Bev!). What kid wouldn’t love that combination?
Need more proof? Check out the gorgeous space she created for her babes in this post about her nursery.
And if you still need proof, read this post about her journey to get pregnant. But make sure you have tissues ready.
And if you don’t love Bev after reading that, well you can just move along then. Today is Bev’s day. I’ve teamed up with a bunch of Bev’s blogging buddies (there’s a lot of us — Bev, you’re very much loved!) to throw this fun surprise shower for her.
I made kale salad with pomegranate, oranges and pine nuts. It’s a perfect winter salad and won’t leave you looking for your chunky sweater to hide in. It’s filling and flavorful. And it has toasted pine nuts which I would eat by the handful if I had an unlimited budget.
I hope you enjoy every word, every recipe and all the love from your virtual shower, Bev. We all love you and can’t wait to meet Natalie and Will. You’re going to be really, really good at this mom thing. xoxo
