Healthy Citrus Pear and Kale Salad cardiocoffeeandkale.com

This detox salad is so scrumptious!  Although it would be great anytime of the year, it makes me feel like spring is here and warm weather is on the way!  I love the mix of the slightly sweet salad with the goat cheese, it is a great pairing.  The kale and pumpkin seeds are nutritional powerhouses, making it full of antioxidants and vitamins to feed your body.  What a tasty way to usher in warm weather!
