Not going to lie, choosing a salad for this week's meal was a bit of a gamble with my family. I could eat salads for lunch and dinner all week long, but my family? Not so much. My plan was to get this one and make it for my lunches this week. Alas, that never happened, and I ended up making this one for our dinner because I needed to use it up.
The chicken was really simple--just Italian seasoning, salt and pepper sprinkled on top and sautéed in some olive oil. Am I the only one who didn't realize until about a year ago that you are supposed to massage kale before you eat it? One thing I love about HelloFresh recipes is that they have very clear directions, explained in beginner cook terms--they even explained WHY you are supposed to do that (apparently it makes it more tender and less bitter). I thought this salad was very good, and my husband (who NEVER eats salad for dinner) enjoyed it. The dressing had a nice lemon-y flavor to it that made it taste fresh, and the prep was very easy. I won't say that everyone RAVED about it, but no one complained and I thought it was very good. Bonus is that it was in the "lower calorie" category. So, order this one if you are like me, and trying to eat a little healthier as we start the new year.
husband: 7 (trust me, for a salad, this is high!)
daughter: 8 (she loves Caesar salad!)
