Fresh Kale Salad with carrots and sunflower seeds

Can you believe that we did not have mixed greens as a salad tonight?! Yup, it has finally happened another type of salad thanks to our lovely weekly CSA box :)  This week, we got a nice big bunch of Lacinato Kale as well as a bunch of rainbow carrots.  Time for a change of pace, right?  Now, I cannot tell you today what our main meal was {stay tuned for next Sunday to find out} but the fresh Kale salad turned out great!  Yay - after two just about average dinners I may have my mojo back...Oh, and in case you were wondering; both of our girlies loved the salad as well :)
