Charred Zucchini, Chevre, and Kale Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette is a robust combinations of flavor that’ll impress the whole family!
You’ll love our Charred Zucchini, Chevre, and Kale Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette- the charred zucchini, toasted pine nuts, and chevre cheese all cozy on a bed of kale is amazing. But, then lets add the Lemon Vinaigrette and hold on tight cuz here’s the best part… it’s sweetened with Truvía® Nectar and that means all the sweetness with less calories 🙂 Which is sooooo AWESOME!
Grilling season is still under way so I thought you’d probably want to give this Charred Zucchini, Chevre, and Kale Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette are try before we’re tucking away those grills the winter.
Fall is definitely in the air around my neck of the woods. We’re still hitting some pretty high temps in the days but the evenings are starting to cool off, which is lovely, actually! I was out hiking in the mountains last weekend and the leaves are beginning to turn up there… time seems to fly by so fast these days.
I’m just totally LOVIN’ with the NEW Truvía® Nectar blend it’s seriously fabulous!Have you grabbed a bottle? You’ll love it too and check out my other recipes that have it too… Chilled Lemon Apricot Soup, Pineapple Coconut Overnight Oats, and Strawberry Yogurt Parfait!
It’s a delightful blend of stevia leaf extract and honey, Truvía® Nectar has 50% fewer calories per serving than sugar and adds a touch of sweetness wherever you would use agave, sugar or honey. Because Truvía® Nectar is twice as sweet as honey, you only need to use half as much.
If you haven’t ever tried charred as a way to enhance you’re grilling experinces- give it a try! Just take the edges of whatever you’re grilling past the well done point and give them a little char, it’s great trick to add some smokey flavor to your grilled foods!
Charred Zucchini, Chevre, and Kale Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette is an amazing flavor combination that you’re really enjoy!
I hope you have a really awesome Monday 🙂
Much Love and Peace~
