This salad is a staple in our home. And even though it holds over very well in the fridge for a few days (which makes it a great make-ahead salad), we can’t seem to keep it around for very long. A few notches above an ordinary green salad in the nutritional department, the kale and beets pack tons of vitamins and nutrients, while the zippy garlic-ginger dressing will make your taste buds wake up and sing, “Hallelujah!”
