A Tropical Salad

Tropical “Dessert” Salad

Image of Tropical Dessert SaladI was ready for a different kind of salad, so I created this “tropical dessert” salad for a different taste.  I used Kale as the green for this one. I also created a sweet dressing to put in it.

I wanted to add Kiwi also but forgot to pick them up when I was shopping for the ingredients.

I served this with crab cakes and wine for my husband and some neighbor buddies of ours.
