the best salad, ever

I've been eating this salad almost every day for a few weeks now. It's. So. Good.

The inspiration for it came from this post. But when I made it I didn't have the exact ingredients, so I changed things up by using what I did have. I've also made it using different greens - a spinach/chard/arugula mix works great.

It should be noted that while I'm not an advocate of processed/packaged/bottled anything, the salad dressing below is what makes this salad so perfect. I wouldn't eat it with anything else.

baby kale
1 small granny smith apple, chopped
1 tbsp. red onion, minced
1 tbsp. roasted sunflower seeds
2 tbsp. roasted cashews
handful of dried cranberries

Place kale on a plate, top with the apple, onion, nuts, seeds & cranberries. Top with dressing.


  1. one word for this, fresh. i'm 100% sure i'd like this

  2. I've still never tried Kale. Is that bad?

  3. YUM! I've been eating so much salad lately. I think I'm having garden withdrawals.

    I also got really excited when I saw this post from your food blog. : )
