Yep, this is another “this is so simple I can’t believe it!” Kind of recipe. It’s how I like to do things, simple and delicious AF. This salad checks off all the boxes-fresh, colorful, filling (hello fiber!) and with a creamy nutty dressing.
It is definitely a good one for meal prepping as it holds ups really well with the dressing! Speaking of the dressing, this one is so good that I have considered making enough to fill my bathtub to swim in…ok kidding but it is freaking good.
Want to make it a full meal? Add any protein of your choice and you’ll be good to go! Chicken, tofu, quinoa or chickpeas would all be delicious options.
For this salad, I used Natures’s Greens organic kale which I adore because it is locally farmed in South Carolina. There is just something so special about using produce that was grown by local people!
I hope that you enjoy this springtime salad! Be sure to tag me on Instagram @wildlywholesome if you make it!
