A Simply Elegant and Elegantly Simple Salad

Since she cannot subsist on baked goods alone, the Baker occasionally requires main dishes and even salads. And, in this case, a healthy dish can actually be a delicious one.

Making this salad only requires a few simple ingredients:

  1. Kale: which needs to be washed and ripped into bite-sized pieces
  2. Garlic: which should be roasted in the oven. The quick way to do this is to coat the garlic in olive, wrap it in tinfoil, and then roast it in the oven for 40 minutes.
  3. Cucumber: just add salt and pepper to it and let it sit for 15 minutes
  4. Quick-pickled onion: add apple cider vinegar, salt, and sugar to a bowl and mix until the salt and sugar have dissolved. Then, thinly slice onion, combine it with the liquid mixture and let the whole thing sit for an hour.

At this point, the recipe becomes incredibly simple. Take all of the ingredients, combine them in a bowl, and you’re done. Eat.

At this point, it is also necessary to espouse the awesomeness that is roasted garlic. In this salad, the roasted garlic balances the acidity of the quick pickled onions to create an excellent salad that will definitely give you energy for the rest of your day!
