Try This Tonight: Moroccan Kale Salad

Try This Tonight: Moroccan Kale Salad

I am a woman on a mission...and my quest to use up as much of the lovely herbs and veggies from my garden before fall sets in, continues...

This recipe for Moroccan Kale Salad has been a favourite of mine for ages and it just so happens to be perfect for making the most of the abundant supply of cherry tomatoes, mint, kale and cilantro that I currently have on hand in the garden.  

Things that I love about this salad are: every bite tastes different, it eats like a meal, and it gets more flavourful the longer the ingredients are able to hang out together in the bowl.  I also love that there is a ton of room to add or leave out ingredients that you may, or may not, have on hand. The following is how I would typically prepare my Moroccan Kale Salad, but feel free to go a little rogue and add in any other ingredients that you think will compliment it.
