A wildly delicious kale and grain salad that has it all: sweet, refreshing and satisfying.
I love Fall-inspired salads, like my Perfect Autumn Salad. This salad is also Autumnal, and it has my heart – it is wildly delicious.
I ate this salad for lunch and dinner one day, then made a second, larger batch and ate it for days on end and I am still in love with it. You have to try it. It’s great for lunch but it would also make a beautiful Thanksgiving salad to compliment your holiday meal.
This salad has everything; it is satisfying and filling because it features black forbidden rice as the grain. It has a refreshing and slightly sweet dressing that is complimented by plump black grapes and tangy dried cranberries. And the finishing touches – crunchy toasted almonds, salty feta, and vibrant fresh basil – add just the kick the salad needs to take it from yum to obsession-worthy. I’ll be making this all season long…
Although this salad is perfect on its own, it would be lovely topped with grilled salmon or chicken. Enjoy!
