You’ll Love Kale Salad After Trying This Easy Recipe

A.K.A. The Kitchen Sink Kale Salad, and it’s AH.MAY.ZING!

Besides, after 3 slices of that Bananas Foster Cake AND a few of them awesome Shrimp, it was time to hit the reset button and stuff thy belly with a salad.

Hi Hey! How ARE you? Raise your hand if you LOVE kale!!

Mmm’kay… not very many hands.

Please allow me to change your mind with this salad. Cool?

This Kale Salad Is Loaded With All My Favorite Ingredients 

There’s power in a good salad and THIS kale salad has the secret and the power to make you want it. The secret?! It’s NOT in the greens. Um duh. The secret lies in the fixins. Of course.

Thus, the only thing we always have to do is take all that good-for-you kale stuff and make it taste WAY BETTER by topping it with healthy avocados and a good dose of feta.

I know what you’re thinking.  You really don’t even have to say it. There’s a whole lot more than avos and feta up in dis salad. I know I know. But imagine the title up there – it would have been a mile long. Trust me. You don’t even want to know how many titles I came up with before settling.

On top of that, Mr. Google told me Avocados and Feta are popular so I went with that pair instead of the whole Raisins + Pears deal.

The better question here is; what on Earth made me throw all this stuff together in one big bowl? I mean, there’s pears, there’s spinach, there’s almonds, there’s RAISINS… onions, tomatoes…

Well, it was time to empty out the fridge and that’s the whole truth. Vegetable bins with only 4 mini sweet peppers and half-a-bag of spinach + one Bosc pear and a handful of raisins sitting in the pantry. A Kale Salad was the only solution.

And then I drowned it all in Garlic Dijon Vinaigrette and devoured it. Deeee-licious.

Another day. Another dang good salad. You know how it goes.

Make it and love it. I sure did!

ENJOY!
