This salad recipe may look very Christmas-sy because of the colors, but it's actually great as a spring or even summer salad. I like how the fresh kale complements the sweet taste and texture of the red beets and corn, while enjoying the crunch of the cashew. Adding boiled egg makes this salad a filling meal in itself while using only the healthiest of dressing -- yogurt. It is best to serve this salad chilled, especially on warm summer days; but in the colder days of spring, serving it warm works perfectly as well.
