Summer Kale Salad

I have most of the ingredients assembled for delicious kale salad! Play around with the ingredients and the dressing: I usually don't have edamame, have reduced the sugar and tried different vinegars. Make it your own! PS - Did you see the vintage cat salt and pepper shakers (in the photo) that my Mom/Margie found for me?

When the weather cools down a bit you may want to try "Zuppa Toscana" soup

Dressing - Combine and whisk together until the sugar dissolves:

3/4 cup white sugar

1/2 cup vinegar

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

1/4 cup olive oil

Toss together:

1 bunch kale, stems removed and leaves chopped

1/2 - 16 oz. pkg. frozen shelled edamame, thawed

1/4 red onion, thinly sliced

1 cup shredded carrot

2/3 cup fresh blueberries

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1/2 cup cashew pieces

1/2 cup shelled roasted sunflower seeds

Pour half the dressing over and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate 4-6 hours. Serve remaining dressing on the side.
