Fall is right around the corner so I want to share with you my favorite summer salad! We make this at least 3 nights a week and we eat it as our meal but it makes for a great side dish too.
I love the combination of sweet, salty and tangy… this salad is an explosion of flavors and textures in your mouth!
I call it summer salad because this is the time of the year where we tend to crave more cold foods but honestly we make it all year round.
This is a basic recipe so feel free to add any other veggies you love. Some of our variations include radishes, broccoli and Brussel sprouts.
Serves: 2 Prep Time: 10 min. Cooking time: - Total: 10 min.

Wash all the veggies and rinse well.
Chop the kale, carrots, tomatoes, cucumber and dates.
In a big salad bowl mix the kale with the leafy greens.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
