She did such a great job in chopping tomatoes, that I told her she’s an expert already!

Black Beans Kale Salad


So, I went to Starbucks the other week and bought myself this salad there.  It had some kale, cilantro, carrots, black beans, brown rice, corn, sweet peas, and feta cheese. I thought to myself.  Wow, this is some salad.  It actually tastes really good.  Now; the ingredients do not look too hard that I can’t make myself and always up for the experimentation to trying it out and seeing how it goes.

So, the above is my version of the kale black beans salad, and it turned out really well.   My family thought it was interesting and never thought about adding rice to it.   I told them, look guys, we can’t eat biryani (indian rice dish) for the next week or so, so I improvised and threw it into a salad.

It tastes different right?  good right?   yeah, but still a biryani salad, like my daughter said, “We had Britnaney!” cuz she couldn’t pronounce “Biryani.” properly.  I don’t think many can pronounce it properly.  I’m sure more are reading it as “Ber-yani.” or “Birrrr-yani.”  and as my daughter says, “Brit-ney!” and only some of us get the joke behind that.

So here is the version; with the easy step by step instructions on how to make this from home.    Please like, leave a comment or two, and share this with others!      Subscribe to my blog.      Share your blog in the comments below!      Have an awesome week!
