We’ve been bringing a bunch of hearty salads to work for lunch because of the limited takeout options in the neighborhood. Let me back up. We aren’t salad-for-lunch gals by nature. We are gals who can eat most men under the table. In fact, I finished my husband’s entree on our first date. I’m not proud, but there it is. That said, the realities of the post-40 gut are undeniable and, as such, we try to be good. Yesterday’s finely chopped kale salad with crumbled feta, chopped carrots, celery, apple, hard-boiled egg and red onion with a garlic, olive oil, lemon vinaigrette was nice and filling. Granted, we weren’t shy with the feta, but a gal’s gotta fill her belly.

Hefty Kale Salad for Two

a bunch of kale, finely chopped, as  you would for slaw

a celery stalk, chopped

a carrot, chopped

a few slivers of red onion

1/4 of a block of feta, crumbled and tossed vigorously into dressed salad, so that it incorporates

This works as a salad for two for dinner. Other protein like grilled steak or roasted chicken make nice additions.

    massaging your kale with some of the dressing before adding the other ingredients will make the salad even better and more nutritious!
