This Apple and Goji Berry Kale Salad tastes like fall with every bite! When you “massage” the kale with your hands, the kale becomes sweeter and softer, so don’t skip this step. Sweet apple, crunchy sunflower and pumpkin seeds, and chewy and tart goji berries are a match made in heaven. And if you’re anything like me, you eat salads for the awesome toppings. And this salad delivers the best toppings!
