Sweet Pea & Kale Salad with Lemon Mint Vinaigrette

August 28, 2016

Author Notes:

To me this salad epitomizes summer with fresh, local in-season ingredients and has become one of my favourites. Or rather, the dressing has become my favourite go-to dressing for many salads! The flavours of this salad pair nicely with a Gewurztraminer Reisling.
