This Kale and Spelt Salad with Peach and Pine Nuts really started as a kitchen sink salad, but ended up being something I made three times in a week. So yes, it’s this good. I had kale from the farmers market that I wanted to use as well as some cherry tomatoes. I knew I wanted a grain in there, I love kale salads with grains, so I opted for spelt this time, but feel free to use freekeh, farro, or barley. Any chewy grain will do.

If you make this recipe, I’d love to see it. Please tag @LivityGardens on Instagram and use the hashtag #LivityGardens.
