After a long weekend spent gorging on indulgent meals in Asheville, I knew exactly what I wanted tonight: KALE SALAD. It doesn’t really get much more wholesome or healthier than that, you know?
Steven took the lead, putting together most of the salad while I was at work. He chose this kale Caesar — a fine choice! The crispy garlic roasted chickpeas made for a nice topping, which we augmented with some store-bought croutons he picked up (not pictured). I had intended to add some freshly picked cherry tomatoes from the garden, but then completely forgot in my hungry state. :)
I fully expect to require a snack this evening… although the salad’s tahini-based dressing made the dish nice and creamy and filling, it’s still not a large dinner! I’ll probably make a bowl of popcorn, a go-to night snack. I’ve got a few pre-mixed toppings (one that’s inspired by sour cream and onion, and another that tastes like Doritos), so it’s easy to make a flavorful bowl. I also like doing kettle corn, although that requires a bit more work. We shall see.
And now I’m heading out to the garden to see how wild it got over the weekend. Tomatoes, prepare to be plucked from your vines!
