I came home from errands today and was craving a kale salad.  Yes, I could have called Burger Up right down the street from me and paid $20 for their wonderful kale salad (I get it with salmon!), but I was like – hmmmm – I’m pretty sure I’ve got all I need at home.  Well, except for cranberries.  So, I stopped by the corner store, picked up some dried cranberries and voila!  I had it all.

I hear all the time “I don’t have time to eat healthy.”  Well, yes, yes you do.  Let’s be honest – that’s an excuse.  This salad took me 5 minutes to make, and I probably ate it even faster because it’s so good!  Sooooo – no excuses friends!  Just make sure you have the ingredients on hand, and you can whip this up in a jiff!

Honestly I just kind of threw all of this in – a handful of cranberries, cashews, and probably 1/4-1/2 cup of parm cheese.  Food process the kale down then mix everything else in!  Don’t overthink it or measure – just go for it!

INGREDIENTS AND DIRECTIONS 

2/3 bag Tuscan kale – food processed to chop (it processes down)
1/4 – 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
Dried Cranberries
Cashews
Chicken shredded (buy some of the pre-cooked chicken from Trader Joe’s)

Citrus Vinaigrette –
Olive oil, squeeze half a lemon, squeeze 1/2-1 orange, 1-2 tbs of honey, pepper

Mix together well, pour over salad and enjoy!!
