Crunchy Greens Salad

Crunchy Greens Salad

Salads these days… they are certainly not all healthy. Cheese, bacon, creamy salad dressing aren’t always the best additions for healthy eating. Even I am certainly guilty on the cheese front! But this salad is the perfect mix when you want to feel good about what you are eating. This salad packs a powerful punch. Kale is an excellent source of vitamin A and vitamin C, there is protein from edamame, and healthy fats from avocado. This salad is the perfect to make when you have a CSA vegetable box with some extra you don’t know what to do with (like crunchy sprouts ;)) What’s even better there is no cooking and barely any prep required!
