Kale Salad

I'm having lots of fun playing around with Capture One, a RAW converter and photo editing software.  The image on the left is totally unprocessed while the one on the right has all of the adjustments I made using the software.  I love how easy it is to white balance and to make the colors pop!

I don't really have a recipe for this one as I just threw together whatever I had on hand and hoped the flavors melded together.  The vinaigrette consisted of some Dijon mustard, freshly squeezed orange juice and salt whipped with olive oil.  It made for a surprisingly tasty salad with the addition of nuts, orange slices and some goat gouda.  FYI if you're not aware of this--remove kale stems if you're eating them raw.  I found out the hard way that that was the bitter part of the plant.
