Lately I've been craving a good kale salad. Kale salads can be so satisfying, so healthful.
With this deep desire to create an epic kale salad in mind, I went ingredient shopping to Whole Foods. The perfect place to start such a quest, wouldn’t you agree?

I got to the produce section, and saw they offered quite an impressive selection of kale. I went with the one that had the cutest name of them all: Dino Kale. Loved the name. Loved how fresh it looked. Loved its deep green color. And loved its texture. Dino Kale it was!

Then, I ventured off to the bulk section and saw that walnuts were on sale, so I bought a bunch of those to go with my salad. From the corner of my eye, I was able to see some great looking apple juice sweetened dark cherries. I immediately turned around and walked towards them; I knew these ladies would 100% compliment the walnuts in my salad. Mmm. I could already taste the goodness.

Then, it was time for me to start thinking of my salad's dressing. I knew I wanted it to be savory, not sweet, so that already narrowed down my options, and I was already leaning more towards a tangy and citrusy sort of flavor. I grabbed a few last ingredients I was needing for this, and then headed home.

I had remembered reading about a salad recipe online that carried a walnut combination with nutritional yeast and garlic, so I decided to mimic that! The nutritional yeast would give my salad a nice cheesy flavor, that would go just perfect with the garlic and lemon, plus it is super nutritious. YUM. 

I made my salad, accompanied with some delicious homemade grilled chicken and farro (recipes for these coming soon to the blog, so stay tuned) and had a feast at home.

Best meal in a long, long time. Highly recommend it!
