So when does school start again?

 

I’m loving all this fantastic summer weather we are having, taking my kids on hikes at the lake, to the zoo, to the fair, to the playground, and just playing outside.

But guys, I’m ready for school. I’m ready for scheduled naps. I’m ready for a tiny bit of quiet alone time in the day. For a few seconds where I’m not chasing after a part-mountain goat baby or playing dinosaurs or cleaning up messes. Where I can maybe put away the laundry that’s been siting on my bedroom floor (clean and folded) for 3 days. Or finish unpacking the few boxes that got shoved into the guest room and haven’t been touched. Or maybe finish the book I’ve been reading for 2 months now. Or, how about actually update this blog once in a while?
 
Yup, I am loving summer. But I am getting ready for fall, too. But before it comes, I want to grab onto a little bit of summer produce while I still can! And this summer is the peak of perfection! Its super quick to pull together, delicious and satisfying!

How to make summer kale salad

This dinner salad is really simple to make! For the full set of directions, please make sure to scroll down to the recipe card below, but here is a brief overview:

  1. Make the vinaigrette by combining the ingredients into a food processor. Pulse a few times until it is smooth and combined. Place in the fridge to chill while you assemble the rest of the salad.
  2. Prepare all the produce – wash and dry everything. Slice the cherry tomatoes in half.
  3. Divide the kale between two plates.
  4. Top with corn, blueberries, tomatoes, chèvre cheese and sliced almonds.
  5. Drizzle the vinaigrette on top.
  6. Enjoy

This salad is also awesome to use with fresh summer corn from the cob! Try to microwave corn on the cob to make it easier and quicker.
