It’s no secret that I’m not a huge fan of cold weather and now that we are officially in the midst of winter and it’s snowing, I need all the warming up that I can get. I love salads and I’ve shared my favorite summer salad but during the winter I need comfort food and to me comfort food needs to be warm, yummy and satisfying. That’s why last year, I switched to warm salads during the winter. If you follow me on Instagram  you know that my birthday was last Friday and I didn’t hold back so this week I want to slow things down a bit. On Saturday, the kids were having cabin fever and after The Super Knight brought me his boots for the third time, I made a shopping list, dressed them and headed out. My plan was to go to both Walmart and the supermarket but I was happy that I was able to find all comfort food I needed at Walmart including the ingredients for my favorite warm salad. I was excited to get a box of Quaker® Simply Granola, with almonds, oats and honey. Finding everything I needed at Walmart saved me from taking the toddler in an out of his car seat. I know y’all know how that can be especially in the cold.

So yesterday, while the kids were out at grandma’s, I took advantage of the opportunity to make my salad. See, this is a salad I usually have by myself since The Princess Fairy has nuts allergies and can’t eat almonds. If your child or another member of your family have nuts allergies as well, download this printout with Tips for avoiding cross-contamination  when you prepare foods with allergens at your home.

Without further ado, here is my warm salad recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do:

You’re going to need:

  • 4 cups kale
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup Quaker® Simply Granola
  • 4 tablespoons olive Oil
  • 2 chopped garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

3. Add garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes.

4. Add Kale and stir.

5. Sprinkle black pepper.

6. Cook for about 2 minutes. You will know that the kale is cooked when it softens and changes to a darker green color.

7. Add dijorn mustard, dried cranberries and Quaker® Simply Granola cereal.

8. Mix and cook for 1-2 additional minutes.

YUM TIME #LoveMyCereal

I rarely get to watch television so I relaxed on the couch in my fuzzy slippers and my warm throw and enjoyed some 90’s sitcoms reruns. I really enjoyed this warm salad, cranberries and kale are so yummy but the Quaker® Simply Granola added texture and crunch.  What I love most about this salad is that it leaves me feeling full, Quaker® Simply Granola makes it satisfying. #QuakerUp
