Bone-Building Rainbow Kale Slaw with Fresh Oranges

5

This kale slaw recipe was shared with Go Dairy Free by Whole Foods in honor of an organic orange sale. To note, kale is a great source of calcium, and citrus has been linked to healthier bones, too!

From Whole Foods: “Lacinato kale, also known as dinosaur kale, isn’t as tough as curly kale and lends itself well to raw salads like this one. This recipe will easily double for a big group or potluck.”
