Watermelon, Blueberry, and Kale Salad

Meet Jackie. She's my mom. She is the most amazing woman I know.

Her birthday is on Wednesday and I'd like to celebrate her by giving you a week of her recipes!

She has taught me that I can do anything or be anything I want to; and she herself is the perfect example of that. I am very lucky to have her in my life, not only as a mom, but also as a best friend.

She also taught me how to cook and is probably the reason why I love food so much! My mom cooks with mainly organic and all natural ingredients that are extremely healthy and powerful. She also has some traditional recipes that I will never forget enjoying as a child. These may not be as good for you, (like her killer whoopie pies!) but they are definitely amazing! I'll be sharing a little of both with you this week!

This dish is one of the most refreshing summer salads I've had. You really can't go wrong with watermelon, blueberries, and mint! And the benefits of kale are endless!

This is probably the healthiest salad I have ever seen. I think it's a great idea to do a week of your mom's recipes. If I did that I would be cooking pot roasts and pork chops all week (in a good way!) Can't wait to see what's next ;)

Oh, what a sweet tribute to your mom! My mom shared her love of good food with me, too. This salad is gorgeous...kale in salad is new for me, but it looks darn good here :)

Yeah for Mom!! They are the best! Salad looks great. I am not sure I have ever had Kale before, but it looks wonderful with the fruit.
