Lemon Garlic Kale Salad

This recipe holds a very special place in my heart and let me tell you why. I really wanted to expand my salad repertoire and because I had never used kale before, I wanted to start there. I googled a couple recipes and nothing really wowed me, but then I got the idea of mixing the elements of a couple different recipes that sounded good to me and seeing what would come out of that. I love very citrus-forward and garlic-y foods, so putting this together was kind of a no-brainer for me.

So, after experimenting a bit, I came up with this! I have made it for friends on several occasions and it’s been a hit every single time. I think what makes it so good is the simplicity of it and the use of bold flavors. This recipe makes enough for one entree sized salad, or two side salads. I actually have been wanting to put up this recipe for ages, but I kept putting it off because I didn’t know how to accurately measure out everything since this is so second hand to me at this point. So, this was my best attempt at creating an easy-to-follow recipe that you can make by yourself at home! Continue reading “Lemon Garlic Kale Salad”

My Favorite Open Faced Sandwich

This recipe idea came to me all because of one ingredient – my favorite chipotle lime mayo. It’s by the brand Primal Kitchen and oh my is it delicious. You can get this at Whole Foods, Kroger, Target, etc. It’s approximately $8 for a jar, which is steep for a mayo, but I’m telling you…it’s worth it.

All you need is:

  • bread (whole grain preferably)
  • chipotle lime mayo
  • arugula
  • 1-2 eggs
  • seasoning (salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, etc.)
