Hey lovelies!

I'm back after a month away from the blog with a delicious and summery salad!

What have I been up to?

A trip to Salt Lake City for a Young Living convention, a long weekend in Mankato for the 4th and enjoying some much needed time outside having BBQ's and going to outdoor festivals with friends and family!

It was my first time visiting Salt Lake City and I had the best time ever! The mountain view was gorgeous and along with the Young Living convention, I also got to visit the Young Living farm in Mona, Utah!

Check out me hugging one of the farm plants 😂


I know, I'm such a dork! And also with the lovely lavender!


It was such a beautiful experience and I can't wait to go back again someday!

After trying a Kale Caesar Salad at one of the restaurants we visited in downtown Salt Lake City, I knew I had to come home, re-create it and share with all of you!

This salad made at home was just as delicious, if not more delicious that the one I had on vacation!

I visited my local farmer's market yesterday and picked up some kale, and made homemade croutons with cranberry wild rice bread, and whipped up the salad for lunch today.

I seriously can't get enough of kale salads lately. The kale has such a wonderful texture compared to lettuce and so many nutrients!

I'm always looking for more, easy lunch options to avoid eating lunch at a restaurant. This is simple to prep ahead of time, and package a few in single serve containers to grab and go in the morning. I love using these reusable containers for my dressing!

Since kale is available at the farmers market right now, it's also very budget friendly! Bonus!

Some of my other favorite salad options for lunch are:

Watercress, Apple and Zucchini Orzo Salad, Barley and Zucchini Mason Jar Salad, Tomato and Cucumber Orzo Salad, Crunchy Poppyseed Chicken Salad, Crunchy Broccoli and Bacon Salad, or Balsamic Tomato, Cucumber and Strawberry Salad!
