I almost couldn’t believe waking up today that it was September! September brings much newness in my life, as B turns 7 this month and starts 2nd grade. I’m so excited for apple and pumpkin everything, and leggings and boots! But for now, I’m super excited to share my summertime favorite: Easy Southwest Style Kale Salad!


As for the blog, you will see some tweaking here as well – all for the better! Today, I’m kicking things off with launching my new “healthy life” category that will include simple, healthy recipe posts, my fitness journey, and many products that will help make your life even healthier. If you followed along this summer, you read how I was in a bit of a “fitness funk,” which has made me realize how important being healthy is to me. So, I’m overjoyed to share my insights with you all! I also joined a recipe sharing community called Yummly, where you will find my recipes shared, too!

I’m so excited about all the fun changes, and everything that’s in store! And you know what else makes me excited? Lunch time whenever I know this salad is waiting for me! It has been a favorite of mine for a while and highly recommended as a super healthy way to spice up your regular salad routine (I know that I get bored when I eat the same salad everyday!). I usually make this the day after I make corn on the cob for dinner and throw an extra piece in the pot – so easy!


Easy Southwest Style Kale Salad
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 1 bag baby kale mix
  • 1 corn on the cob (cooked)
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 red onion
  • Tomatoes
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 Avocado
  1. Mix together all ingredients in a large bowl except for kale and avocado.
  2. Let sit in refrigerator to marinate together
  3. When you are ready to eat, simply spoon the mixture on top of your kale and slice some fresh avocado on top!


The added bonus with this super Easy Southwest Style Kale Salad recipe is that it basically makes its own dressing, so there is no need to add anything extra. Since I’m the only one in my house (currently!) that will eat anything this healthy, it’s enough for 4 lunch servings, all for me! I hope that you enjoy this as much as I do and follow along, because I’ve got many more favorites to share!

Fashionably Yours,

    I love kale, but have never had it in a salad before. I am going to try your salad idea.
