Recipe: Chopped Kale Salad with Apples, Cucumbers and Ham

I love date day with the girls.

Especially when the date includes Debbie, Sandi and good food like this kale salad with apples, cucumbers and ham.

Chopped Kale Salad with Apples, Cucumbers and Ham
The inspiration for this crunchy salad came from a local Asian food truck. I was so intrigued by the combination of ingredients that I had to attempt to recreate it myself, and who better to try it out on then Debbie and Sandi.

Chopped Kale Salad with Apples, Cucumbers and Ham
The kale, apples, cucumbers and ham chopped into bite sized pieces and tossed with a sweet dressing and sprinkle of Parmesan cheese made this salad finger pickin good. We picked at the bowl while be made these lovely planters Deb found on Pinterest and sipped Deb’s mojitos.

    We’re a little behind on interesting food trucks in Ireland, with most tending towards the ‘Burger n Chips’ variety.

    Love the unusual flavours you’ve combined here, Kristi, and of course light on the waistline as always. Looks like you had a fun, creative evening. The planters are gorgeous!

    Kristi, unfortunately no such thing as food trucks around here either. The salad that you re-created looks so healthy and delicious, quite an interesting recipe. And the picture of your lovely friends is fabulous and so are the wonderful planters that you crafted! What a wonderful time the three of you must have spent together!
    Have an equally fabulous weekend!

      It’s really quite the setup. I was suspicious at first about how they could possibly make food in such cramped quarters, but the food had been incredible, and affordable. I hope you had a wonderful weekend too!
