Kale and Brown Rice Salad with Lemon Dressing

In these cold winter months, it is vital to take in as many vitamins and minerals as possible so that your body can fight the bacteria and viruses that are common. This salad is rich in Vitamin C, and the lemon will help you absorb more iron from the kale. We have made the base brown rice so that the salad is as filling as it is healthy.
