Kale Salad with Citrus, Avocado, and Feta-the perfect salad for citrus season!
Yesterday we shared our BIG news! Thank you for all of your kind comments. We are excited!
I am so relieved that I don’t have to hide anything anymore. I can share what is really going on. Right now, I really don’t like vegetables. I know that is a horrible thing to say, especially for a vegetarian, but I can’t stomach them. I am trying though.
Over the weekend, I made a Kale Salad with Citrus, Avocado, and Feta. I have been craving citrus my entire pregnancy so I figured if I topped my salad with citrus fruits I would be able to choke it down. I surprised myself because I didn’t even have to choke it down, I actually enjoyed it.
I’ve been avoiding the kitchen. I don’t even like to open the fridge. Luckily, this salad was simple to make. I got in and out in no time…and I didn’t have to deal with any strong smells. The citrus actually smelled nice!
This salad has all of my favorite things: kale, oranges, grapefruit, avocado, and feta. I used blood oranges because I spotted them at Whole Foods and they were too pretty to pass up. If you can’t find blood oranges you can use regular oranges. Citrus fruits are in season right now and SO good! Make sure you stock up!
This kale salad will cure your winter blues! It is refreshing, bursting with flavor, and oh so pretty!
It felt good to eat a salad again. I am so happy our baby liked my Kale Salad with Citrus, Avocado, and Feta. I am going to make it today for lunch!
