Kale & Quinoa Salad with Toasted Almonds Recipe

This kale quinoa salad with a honey mustard dressing from HelloFresh is one of my all-time favorites!

I tried HelloFresh for the first time last fall and absolutely LOVED it. My three veggie-friendly recipes came packed in a big box full of fresh ingredients, each in a small carton that tucks neatly into the fridge. While it’s billed as easy, these meals still took me way longer to prepare than something I’d usually make for myself on a weeknight. BUT with each recipe I learned some new skills (like making my own dressing from scratch) and I found a few favorites that I’ve made over and over since my first box—this salad is one of them!

It’s light and fresh for summer but still filling and loaded with super foods that you can feel good about. I live for honey mustard and this homemade dressing is easy and delicious. It’s also super easy to customize (I use shaved parmesan over feta, and you could use different nuts or dried fruit to switch it up).

I’ve made this salad so many times since my last HelloFresh box (meal prep it for a week of lunches or serve it for a night in with friends) that I wanted to share the recipe with you! Hopefully it’ll become one of your favorites too.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Wish List 2017

Shop my favorites from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

It’s that time of year again!

Every summer, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the best time to stock up on your favorite fall pieces, from a fresh pair of booties to cozy knits and cool new jackets. They also have a great mix of summer stuff that you can wear (or float on, or drink out of) through the rest of the warmer months. (Plus there are always amazing beauty bundles, so you can save on your favorite products!)

And the best part about this sale is that it’s not discounted stuff that didn’t sell from last season—it’s a mix of old favorites and new releases for fall, perfect for scooping up the best deals before the season starts. I woke up this morning and it literally felt like Christmas (I have a problem).

Early access to the sale for Nordstrom cardholders started today, but the sale opens to the public July 21 and runs through August 6, so there’s still plenty of time to shop. But the most popular items sell out FAST, so be sure to snag your favorites while you can!

After combing through the catalog and digging through everything online and in store, these are the things I’m loving from this year’s #NSale.

UPDATE: Some have sold out, but lots of my picks are still available! I’ve added a few other things I’ve been shopping from the sale below that are all in stock, too!
