Quite possibly my favorite salad ever 🙆‍♀️. And quite possibly the easiest ever to make ⏰. It takes <10 mins from start to faceplant, and takes less than half that time from faceplant to finish because it’s THAT GOOD 😍. – Made this kale salmon caesar salad for lunch today before dashing out the door to a meeting 🥗 #whatsinmybowl: shredded kale tossed with @primalkitchenfoods caesar dressing (I also like to use baby kale in this salad, which is leafier 🥬) + hemp hearts, red pepper flakes + parmesan •• avocado w/ red pepper flakes & EBTB seasoning •• crispy seared salmon (there’s a tutorial for this in my story highlights!) 🐟 . – Happy Friday!! ❤️ I just got home from a post-workout nail date 👯‍♀️ and am planning on popping open a sofia while my cauliflower crust pizza bakes away in the oven 🍕🥂. Hope you’re all staying warm tonight! 😘
