Loaded Bacon & Kale Salad

This is my favorite meal right now. It's SO good! There are all kinds of ways to experiment with it, adding what you like and taking out what you don't. I think massaging the kale is key, and bacon takes it up 10 notches. The peanuts make it awesome too!

Wash 1 bunch of kale & massage it for 1-2 minutes to soften it- the green will get brighter as you massage it. 
Bake 1 lb of bacon. 
Let it cool & chop it. 
Core and chop 1 apple, 1 tomato, and chop 1/2 or 1/3 of an onion. 

Add everything together into a big bowl, and add 1 or 1.5 cups of peanuts, and salt & pepper to taste (add lemon juice for a bonus!). 
Then add your fave dressing (mine is balsamic vinaigrette), toss and let it cool for a little bit in the fridge. 15 minutes or so is good for me. Yum! Nick says this is a man's salad 😉 but it's my fave too. I love the leftovers too! We usually have 4 servings from this meal, so we eat it for dinner one night and lunch the next day - it's just as great for lunch the next day in my opinion :)
