You guys. I have discovered the most awesomest thing at the grocery store. I’m sure those of you who don’t live in East-bum-fuck Indiana probably already have this. But my grocery store just started carrying it.
Kale. Pre washed. Pre shredded. Bagged. Kale. Just like the lettuce. I think I scared the man in the produce department with my shriek of excitement. Because now, I will eat Kale so much more often. Because the only bad thing about kale is washing and de-stemming it.
So I took the entire ginormous bag and made a yummy kale salad, with some leftover quinoa and a bunch of veggies that were going to start turning bad if I didn’t eat them up soon.
Isn’t it puuurrty?
Here’s what went into the mix. I didn’t measure anything. Psshh. Who does that?
I put the kale in a bowl. (Thanks captain obvious.) Then I poured in a little olive oil, lemon juice, and balsamic vinaigrette. I massaged the heck out of it. (Don’t worry, I bought it dinner first, haha.) Then I added the following ingredients:
Red, orange, and yellow bell peppers
Then, I added a little more balsamic vinaigrette. It was aaammmaazziinnggg. So yummy.
Here are some more shots of it:
With an Amy’s Gluten-free, Dairy-free veggie burger. (One of the BEST burgers I’ve ever had. No joke. One of my biggest fears with going g-free was that I’d never get to eat a veggie burger again.)
Kale salad with some more veggies, and hummus. yum!
Do you like kale? What’s your favorite way to eat it? Can you buy it de-stemmed and bagged? I swear, it changed my life.
