KALE YEAH! Chopped Greek Kale Salad with a healthy homemade Greek dressing you’ll want to put on everything!
As I’m sure you know by now, I’m hopelessly kale-obsessed. Since hopping back on the bandwagon this year, I’ve been keeping a freshly chopped + massaged bag of kale in my crisper at all times.
It comes in handy when I want a snack (kale chips!) or breakfast (quiche!!!) and, of course, whenever a craving for a mondo salad strikes!
I’ve also been riding a serious cucumber kick as I’m sure most of you have noticed from my past few WIAW posts! They’re essentially a love letter to cukes. Can you blame me though? They’re delicious!
Much like my beloved kale, I’ve been eating them non-stop!
What I Ate Wednesday

[breakfast] Egg + cheese on an everything bagel-thin
[snack] Countless slices of watermelon – It’s so refreshing!
[snack] A handful of honey roasted almonds
[lunch] A snack plate with pepperoni, cheese, cucumbers, and dip – YUM!
[snack] More honey roasted almonds… once the jar is open I can’t stop going back for more!
[dinner] a jumbo kale chopped salad
[snack] Almonds. so many almonds (I told you I’m hooked!)
