Fruit + Nut Kale Salad

Salads made at home are repeatedly boring and basic. {At least for me} Mindlessly the iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, cheese, etc are thrown into a bowl. Tossed with balsamic and served.

Salads are a great side dish with dinner. They provide a great balance with any meat, casserole or even soup. Want to know another reason why salads are my favorite? The extra can be lunch for the next day! {money saver}

This salad was inspired by Edible Perspective. I switched up a couple ingredients with what I had on hand. Let me tell you friends, this salad is AMAZING. Hands down.
