Gluten-Free Kale Waldorf Salad

Kale Waldorf Salad

No summer recipe repertoire is complete without a go-to, reliable kale salad. I serve this one often and everyone loves it. Celery, apples, and walnuts give the dish that classic Waldorf flair while also adding color and crunch. Dried cranberries and a drizzle of honey add sweetness that helps to cut the kale’s bitterness.
