Healthy Rubbed Kale Salad with Fresh Berries

Kale recipes are something I find myself drawn to lately as I strive to eat a little bit healthier, and a little bit fresher. This salad is one of my favorites. Not only it a wonderful treat to look at, but it’s also simply scrumptious to eat.

Healthy doesn’t have to be boring. Healthy can also be vibrant, colorful, and exciting. This amazing kale salad is a prime example of just that!

Sunflower Crunch Salad

The reason I call this a “copycat” salad is that it mimics my favorite bagged salad which I purchase in the produce section of the market.

However, if I’m totally honest here (and why wouldn’t I be?), my Kudos Kitchen version is even better than that bagged version because I’ve added dried cranberries to the mix, and I’ve also added apple cider (you can use apple juice if needed) to thin the dressing, and for a little touch of extra sweetness.

Freaky Good Pesto Spaghetti Squash Puking Pumpkin for Halloween

The day I came up with this recipe for pesto spaghetti squash was the day I first spotted the little pie pumpkins in the produce section of the store. I stood there for a moment pondering how I could use one of the pumpkins along with some spaghetti squash which was one section over.

The idea hit quickly. Kind of like nausea itself. But, trust me when I tell you queasy never tasted so good!

Fresh Tomato Tart with Zucchini & Thyme Infused Caramelized Onions

I’m not sure which part of this Fresh Tomato Tart I love the best! Is it the slices of garden fresh tomatoes and zucchini, the crunchy cornflake crust, or the layer of thyme-infused caramelized onions? 

But, I guess it really doesn’t matter which part is my favorite because all of these delicious elements are incorporated into this pretty presentation! Once you try it, you’ll also be hard pressed to decide which part is your favorite.

Healthy Sautéed Creamed Spinach with Strawberries

This dish of Sautéed Creamed Spinach & Strawberries came about one night when I was contemplating a side dish to serve with some fish I was cooking.

Since I had strawberries in the fridge that I needed to use before they spoiled, I tossed some into the sauteed creamed spinach I was preparing. The completed dish tasted amazing, and it was a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds!
