Salads are not my thing. I write that on every salad recipe I
create. In my opinion, salads are exhausting. I think because my
first introduction to salads was when I was finally going through
puberty and tore 5 pairs of jeans in one day, and someone
recommended I start eating salads. And guess what? When you’re 13
and stuffing your face with donuts every day, salads just don’t
tickle your fancy like donuts do. So I thought of salads as diet
food. Miserable, exhausting, diet food. But there are a handful of
salads out there that have reminded me that they aren’t diet
food, they are just delicious food. You can eat a salad without
being on a diet and actually enjoy it. Imagine that!

Still not totally sold on the idea, but I’m trying.

PaleOMG Triple Berry Kale Salad

This kale berry salad is here to give you a mouth full of
vitamins, flavor, and leave you feeling satisfied. Will it make
your life as good as donuts? Sadly no. But it will lead you to feel
better throughout the day, and the next day, and the next week. As
for donuts, they will slowly lead you to tear 5 pairs of jeans when
consumed regularly. Kale, however, will not. But remember, kale is
a high maintenance girlfriend. She needs some massages before
dinner time. Don’t forget to massage your kale, give it a rub
down, and make it feel special. When you do this, it’s less tough
and angry. Just trust me on this one.

As I type this post in France, looking out the window of our
chateaux to a pond filled with giant ducks and sprawling green
hills behind them; I now understand why people are so obsessed with
Europe and spend so much time here. I wasn’t huge into Paris
because it felt so crowded and busy, but the countryside of
Burgundy has shown me that each turn in Europe is more beautiful
than the last. I leave tomorrow and now I wish I would have stayed
longer. I do understand that increases my chances of getting
pickpocketed, but it’s a chance I would be willing to take.

Someone told me that Parisians don’t wear sneakers and me
wearing sneakers while walking around Paris puts a target on my
back. You know what actually puts a target on my back? Being a dumb
American who only speaks English when everyone else in town speaks
4 languages. I might as well be screaming I’M AN IGNORANT
AMERICAN. The sneakers are just the sensible part about being
American. Athleisure is my life.

I would love to chat more but I currently just stuffed my face
with truffle gnocchi and truffle risotto. And now I have savory AND
sweet crepes awaiting my presence. If you need me, I’ll be in a
coma later. Don’t bother me.

PaleOMG Triple Berry Kale Salad

Triple Berry Kale Salad
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 7 minutes
Total Time 17 minutes
Serves 5-6
Ingredients For the candied walnuts

For the salad

  • 1 head of kale, roughly
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced

  1. Place a medium pan over medium
    heat. Add walnuts to the pan and cook for about 5 minutes until
    they begin to become golden and fragrant. Then add sugar,
    maple syrup
    and salt. Use a spatula to toss the nuts in the
    sugar mixture until the sugar melts and coats the nuts. Remove from
    heat once melted, about 2 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. Place all ingredients for the
    orange dressing in a jar, seal, shake well to combined then place
    in the fridge. 
  3. Remove kale leaves from the stem.
    Roughly chop kale then place into a large serving bowl. Use your
    hands to massage the kale for 1-2 minutes. This will soften the
    kale and make it more enjoyable to eat! Add the rest of the salad
    ingredients to the salad bowl along with the candied walnuts. Once
    ready to serve, add desired amount of orange dressing, toss then
    serve immediately.
