Citrus Kale Salad with Peanuts, Pear and Cambozola

I haven't posted anything in a really long time! So how did my Whole30 turn out? I lost 20 lbs! Not in the first month, but after about 4 months of cutting out soy, dairy and processed foods like bread and crackers. Yes, I do have before and after photos. No, I'm not going to share them, because the internet is forever ya'll. Almost a year has passed since that first Whole30, and we did another one this month. We celebrated by going out for beer and pizza. Of course. Duh.

That being said, we recently went out for a (rare!) date night, and here I've re-created the kale salad we couldn't stop talking about. I know. Kale. Right? How exciting is kale. (It's pretty delicious, actually). But hipsters aside, give it a chance.

This salad is freaking awesome. It has pears, kale, a yummy and light blue cheese (my husband hates blue cheese, but loves this one) and a citrusy dressing. Plus, it's easy and fast. 

Cambozola is like a light and creamy brie with flecks of mild blue in it. It's really great, if you can find it. We got it at Trader Joes. 

1 bag of baby kale
1 apple pear, chopped
1/2 cup peanuts
two slices of cambozola cheese, cubed (Trader Joes!)
1 orange
1 Tbsp olive oil
pepper to taste

Combine kale, pear, peanuts and cheese in a bowl. Squeeze the juice of the orange over the top of the salad. Top with olive oil and pepper. Then sing the glorious praises of kale.
