Kale & Salami Salad with Roasted Garlic Vinaigrette (Gluten Free + Dairy Free)

This Kale & Salami Salad with Roasted Garlic Vinaigrette is loaded with roasted fingerling potatoes, crispy toasted chickpeas, golden raisins, and caramelized onions! This filling salad makes the perfect lunch or dinner. It’s gluten free and dairy free, with a Paleo option.

So, there’s this salad that I’m kind of obsessed with. It’s from Tender Greens, a California based restaurant chain that specializes in making the most delicious salads with high-quality ingredients.

I’ve been going there for years, usually on lunch or dinner dates with my mom, and always ordering the same thing: the salami & kale salad with roasted garlic vinaigrette. Holy cow, it’s SO good, you guys. It’s the kind of meal I would crave when I was living in Seattle and couldn’t get one.
