Hey hey foodies, it’s meeeeeeeee Tiffany from Creme de la Crumb. And I think it’s time to level with each other…. how are your new years eating goals comin’? Honestly mine have been pretty spot-on and I’m proud to say I’ve been successfully integrating LOTS of vegetables and salads into my diet. A+

Today I’ve got my newest favorite salad to share with you. It’s a crunchy Asian kale salad with peppers, cabbage, carrots, and tossed with a creamy peanut ginger dressing. Doesn’t that sound look heavenly?? Be sure to toss lots of almonds on top – they’re the best part! No wait the dressing is the best part. Wait! The kale.

I dunno, it’s all good. 🙂
