Classic Gluten Free Pizza and Salad

As I walked out of Pure Barre yesterday afternoon, I glanced at my phone and saw several text messages from Parrish and I just had to laugh.

The first text: “Be forewarned….I’m dying for pizza.”

Second text: “I’m not going to fight you.”

And the last text: “Just saying.”

The funniest part? Thursday night’s meal was his request! He was the one who wanted Kale and Quinoa Cakes!

So we compromised. I called him and struck a deal. We could skip the Kale & Quinoa, and we could share one Udi’s gluten free pizza:

but we had to have a big salad on the side:

Meaning…I wasn’t going to let that kale go to waste!

Of course he agreed – it’s all about compromise right?! Winking smile

In the salad: the last bit of romaine, chopped kale massaged with Tessemae’s Lemonette, half an avocado chopped, thinly sliced shallot, chopped red pepper, and a sprinkling of Cabot Cheese Monterey Jack and salt and pepper

I LOVED this salad! I massaged the kale with the vinaigrette for about 3-4 minutes and then let it sit for another 5 minutes to get rid of that bitter bite.

I think Parrish was surprised by how much he liked the salad – and even with just three slices of that DELICIOUS pizza (seriously, my fave – I could eat an entire pizza) we were both satisfied.

Happy Friday!
