Oh heeyyy guys!!

It’s officially Farm Show time here in Manheim PA and I’ve been currently in need of a salad to dodge walking down to the fair every night and eating fries and milkshakes for dinner! AHH. Really, it’s a block down the road. How could I NOT do that every night?!

Well, I’ll say one thing. THIS salad is how I could not do that!! I made it the other night for a quick meal before we went down for fair food… Ya know? Just like a little filler so we don’t go thaaaat overboard…?

But, who am I kidding? We love food too much not to AND hello! It’s FALL. The season of eating! At least I like to think of it that way.

And SINCE it’s fall, I have been determine to make recipes that make me welcome fall even more… We even carved pumpkins with friends this past weekend. Can you say, EARLY? In our world… never. 🙂

This salad speaks everything FALL to me:
>CHOPPED KALE.
>WARM ROASTED SWEET POTATOES
>CRUNCHY, SWEET POMEGRANATE SEEDS
>WIIILD RICE
oh! And let’s please NOT leave out the refreshing lemon-herb dressing drizzled on top.

I think I heard my husband utter the words – “Best salad ever!” but, that could just be me… 😉

SRYSLY though. This salad—>DELICIOUS. WHOLESOME. REFRESHING. And right up my Fall alley.
