I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Date Nut Kale Salad

Sweet and sour notes from dates, cranberries and maple syrup paired with kale and lemon juice and the added crunch of walnuts

4 cups packed, massaged and chopped kale
3 tbsps fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp lemon zest (optional zing!)
1-2 tsps maple syrup
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup dates, chopped
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
1/4 cup dry cranberries
Whisk the lemon juice, (zest), maple syrup, olive oil, salt and pepper together. Massage the kale in your hands until it softens a bit then remove the ribs, chop and add to the dressing. Add the rest of the ingredients and refrigerate. This can keep 2-3 days and actually improves after a day or so.
Makes 4-6 side salad servings
