This salad is as delicious as it looks.

2014-04-27 16.22.48Ingredients:

1 bunch of kale (chopped)

4 cups spinach

1/2 red onion

2 butter nut squash (slice before baking to make it easier)

1/2 cup cranberries

1 1/2cups goat cheese (I sprinkle it on after I have served the salads into their individual bowls)

Optional: Add walnuts, almonds, cashews or seeds for extra protein and fat. (I cannot tolerate nuts and seeds so you don’t see them in this salad)


1. Throw all ingredients into a large salad bowl except for the goat cheese and squash. Pre-cut squash. Remove the peeling as well.
