Wild rice and kale salad with cranberry vinaigrette

Say hello to your new favorite dish for seasonal potlucks and holiday gatherings! This tasty salad satisfies everyone. It’s easy to make, is served cold and is a colorful addition to any table. The vinaigrette dressing gets a color, flavor and nutritional boost from Regular Girl Wellness. This synbiotic blend of organic cranberry juice powder, prebiotic fiber and probiotics helps promote urinary tract health while also supporting gut health.

A nutritional powerhouse

This wild rice, kale and cranberry salad expertly balances savory and sweet, and provides a satisfying crunch. It also delivers impressive nutrients. Regular Girl Wellness adds 3 grams dietary fiber, boosting the gut-love you’re receiving from the wild rice, nuts and veggies.  

We could go on for days about cranberry’s benefits. What you really need to know is that this fruit contains a unique polyphenol called proanthocyanidins or PACs. Studies show these PACs have benefits for helping support urinary tract health. That’s why grandma always said to drink your cranberry juice!

Regular Girl Wellness contains the equivalent of SIX 8-ounce glasses of cranberry juice, but without the added sugar. Woah! And the added fiber amplifies its power. Double woah!
