Today is an exciting day! I am giving away a 3-pack of Primal Kitchen Mayo.

Who doesn’t love a good massage? Well, my kale is loving one right now as I’m getting ready to prepare a delicious kale salad tossed with pistachios, cherry tomatoes, and juicy Kalamata olives. But why am I massaging the kale first? If you’ve ever had a raw kale salad, you might have noticed that the kale was a little bitter and its texture a little coarse.

Potatoes are a real comfort food and what better way to enjoy them in the summertime but in a rich, creamy potato salad? There’s just something about a cool dish of potato salad that makes a summer meal a true delight. At the same time, though, I used to shy away from eating potato salad. I used to think something this tasty couldn’t be good for me. After all, it’s potatoes and mayonnaise. We all know what potatoes do to our waistline, right? And commercially prepared mayo is processed with all kinds of ingredients that we really don’t want to eat. Fear not!
