Superfood Salad

I’m sure you’ve seen those bagged kale salads at a grocery store, and kudos to the companies making it convenient in dumping their package of superfood into a bowl, but it’s still bagged salad *poo* Of course, I read the ingredients, picked up fresh produce to make at home, and skipped out on their poppyseed…
