Chevre-Macadamia and Fig Kale Salad

I'm not sure why I didn't put all of these ingredients together once before. It really is fantastic. Each bite has amazing flavor. I've had it four days this week for lunch and I am not tiring of it. Though I have made it a bit different each time, this one topped my list. And, I have no photo to show for it. 

Chevre-Macadamia and Fig Kale Salad

Handful of kale, finely chopped
1 apple, diced (alternatively you could do 1/2 an apple and 1/2 an avocado, I did this a few times)
1 mint leaf, finely chopped
1/2 small carrot, diced/shredded
Small handful of macadamia nuts
Sprinkle of Chevre Goat Cheese crumbles
1 fig, diced
1/2 tsp scallion, diced
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar (alternatively you could use lemon juice or omit)

Method:

Toss everything together ;) To ensure you get the full flavor of this salad, I like to shake it up in a container or toss in a large bowl before I eat it. That way the apple cider vinegar gets a chance to do its thing and everything else gets mixed around.

Absolutely invigorating! Love this salad!

Enjoy ;)

Mmm. Fresh and delicious. I say that a lot, I know. But it was.
