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
