Melissa Ben-Ishay made a name for herself in the early 2000s with her bite-sized cupcakes and founded one of the most well-known bakeries in NYC, Baked by Melissa. So, of course, she loves desserts, but turns out, she also loves salads! Her creations have been trending on TikTok (@bakedbymelissa) with more than one million views. Her hit rainbow salad is not only delish, but really healthy by design, too. As Melissa says, "Mealtime is for nourishment, and if you get your fulfillment from your mealtime, then you can absolutely indulge in dessert every single day, which is what I do." We'll eat to that!
Pro Tip from Melissa: Feel free to add your favorite protein to the salad.

For the salad, in a large bowl, make a bed with the kale ribbons. Arrange the bell peppers, carrots, corn and red cabbage on top in a rainbow wheel formation.
For the vinaigrette, in a medium bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients until combined. Pour over the salad and toss to serve.
