Healthy Recipe: Southwestern Kale Salad

This is one tasty, easy meal. Softer salad greens like lettuce would wilt from sitting in citrus juice, but raw kale actually gets better. The citrus dressing “cooks” the kale, softening the tough leaves, while adding a tangy flavor to the whole salad. Creamy avocado, sweet roasted corn, and protein-packed black beans round out this filling and colorful salad.
