Kale and Winter Citrus Salad with Agave-Lime Dressing

In the heart of winter, right when your body needs some extra vitamin C for a strong immune system, mother nature gives us another season of vibrant citrus fruits like grapefruit and blood oranges! Make the most of this winter citrus with a hearty kale salad and a flavorful homemade Agave-Lime Dressing. Easily make this a full meal by adding lean protein like baked chicken, grilled salmon, quinoa or tofu!

If you find that kale is a bit too hearty of a green for you, try softening the kale leaves with this trick: in a bowl, drizzle a bit of the dressing over the prepared kale and crunch the leaves between your hands until the dressing is distributed evenly; then, rub the kale leaves between your fingers until they get vibrant in color, more fragrant, and crispy.
