Go Vegetarian: The White House Kale Salad Recipe

February 26, 2013

Make your own kale salad, dressing and all, in 25 minutes. This recipe comes to us from the White House -- it was included in the Obamas' Thanksgiving dinner menu. All of the ingredients were harvested right on the White House lawn.

This kale salad recipe is already easy to make, but you can make things even easier by doing some of the prep work beforehand. You can make the dressing and store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two days. Just whisk it up before serving.
