It’s no secret we love stumbling upon  recipes from Meghan Markle’s old food blog, The Tig,  and her Mediterranean Diet-friendly kale salad might just be our new favorite. The Duchess of Sussex is passionate about healthy eating and, even though she’s a royal, she still loves to cook for her loved ones. We can just imagine her whipping up this refreshing salad for her and Harry after a long day.
