Easter is on Sunday and I am very hoppy about that. I know, hardy har har:) My sister, niece, and nephew are coming over tomorrow to dye eggs. We are also going to do a little egg hunt. Caleb thinks eggs are balls so he should dominate the egg hunt:) He is getting raisins and pretzels in his eggs, no candy yet! Sorry kiddo!
On Sunday, we are keeping things low key. We will go to church and cook up something tasty. I am still deciding on our menu. I know ham will not be on the menu. Josh loves ham, but since I am in charge this Easter…and almost every day, I am vetoing it. I know it’s tradition for some, but I am going to start a new tradition. I need to hurry up and decided what that tradition is:)
I do know that we will be having this Kale, Strawberry & Avocado Salad with Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing. It is one of my favorite salads and will be a great addition to our Easter meal…whatever that meal ends up being:)
Kale salads are trendy right now. All of the cool kids are eating them. I am not a trendy person, especially when fashion is involved, but I am going to consider myself trendy now because I love kale salads. And this kale salad is the incredible hulk of salads!
I top the kale with all kinds of goodies. Strawberries and avocados are making their way back into the grocery stores. I guess they are always there, but now is their season to shine! I am so happy about that because I love them both! They are so good in this salad too. Not only do they make the salad pretty, but they are tasty! I also add almonds and feta cheese.
I drizzle a simple Lemon Poppy Seed dressing over the salad before serving. And when I say simple, I mean simple. I put all of the ingredients in jar and shake like crazy. The dressing takes about five seconds to make. No need to buy dressing. The dressing is light, refreshing, and I love the pop of poppy seeds!
If you haven’t tried a kale salad, join the club and make this Kale, Strawberry & Avocado Salad with Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing. It’s easy and soooo good. You will feel trendy after eating it. Move over Kardashians, Bieber, and whoever else is trendy right now. I don’t even know. Remember, I am not trendy:) We are taking over the world with this kale salad!
