The best part about fresh kale apple salad with wild rice

The apples, of course! They give it the perfect flavor balance of sweet and tangy.

Raise your hand if you’re anxiously counting down the days to go apple picking. All the orchards are at least an hour away from us, so we make a day trip out to the country. I’m always wanting to wear scarves and boots for the grand event, but unfortunately it is always hot. We would melt into juicy puddles of apple cider if we bundled up, and I’ve wisened up in my mothering ways.

Also, DO NOT wear white to go pick apples with your children. Why I thought it was a good idea with a toddler and a baby still perplexes me. Photo opp? The white looked good contrasted against the red and green trees? No, Abbey. Just NO. What the pictures really ended up showcasing were all the dirt and drool that inevitably landed on everyone’s shirts—yours truly included.
