Mixed Kale and Golden Beet Salad

 Mixed Kale and Golden Beet Salad
4 Servings
½ bunch curly kale, chopped
½ bunch flat leaf (Russian Red) kale, chopped
½ bunch lacinato aka dinosaur (dino) kale, chopped
2 medium golden beets, julienned
1 cucumber, sliced thin
1 medium carrot, grated
1 cup walnut pieces
½ cup dried cranberries
For the Dressing
¼ cup white wine vinegar
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
½ teaspoon granulated garlic
½ teaspoon granulated onion
¼ teaspoon crushed red chili peppers
¼ teaspoon ground ginger

Place all vegetables and fruit in a large bowl with a lid. 
Place all of the dressing ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until a creamy texture is reached.
Pour dressing over salad, mix thoroughly and let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving.
Mix in the walnuts just before serving.

Note:  Another dressing I like with this salad is the Asian Style Vinaigrette.
