I had a friend over for a quick lunch yesterday, which inspired me to make a healthy, hearty salad with some fresh produce. This is an extremely simple and fast recipe, and will keep in the fridge for a couple of days if you have leftovers.

With some major superfoods in it like kale and white beans, this salad will certainly fill you up and keep you going. A perfect light salad for the weekend!
