CITRUS & BABY KALE SALAD - SIMPLY SUNDAYS

Winter in Northern California means delicious farm-to-table citrus! Fresh Navel oranges and grapefruits are plentiful, making it the perfect time to include them with locally grown candied nuts in green salads. I love pairing them with baby kale, pickled red onions, dried cranberries, feta cheese with a fresh squeezed orange vinaigrette.
