Nix the dreaded dinnertime rut with a dinner combo that’s super easy and finger-licking good! Speedy enough for hectic weeknights, this Honey Glazed Chicken and Southwest Kale Salad is ready to rock your plate!
That title. Yeesh!
I wanted to simply things and simply title it BBQ Kale Salad but it gave me this weird mental image of barbecue sauce slathered on grilled kale leaves. I know, SO the opposite of what this salad is.
This salad is light and crisp and nutrition packed, delivering a punch of smoky-sweet barbecue flavor that is positively addictive when paired with the homemade ranch dressing and fresh veggies. It’s a party on a plate and a tasty bite of Summer.
Yes it’s still Summer, people. Put down the pumpkin!
Just kidding, I’ve totally already embraced the pumpkin too buuuuuut this weather still calls for some celebratory salads, mmkay?
While this pairing might seem a little cuckoo for cocoa puffs, let me tell you, it’s one of those shout-it-from-the-rooftops sort of flavor pairings that I absolutely can’t get enough of.
I stuffed face.
Then I ran over to the neighbor’s to tell them they HAD TO TRY THIS STAT!
The next line of action, of course, is to tell you the same. Make this. Yes with the kale. Yes with the pecans. Yes with ALL THOSE VEGGIES.
