One of my favorite things to do when the kids are in bed and all of my “mom duties” are done for the day is to watch a little TV while checking in on Facebook and Instagram. I really only watch two channels – HGTV and The Food Network. I just LOVE all the brilliant ideas I get from the shows. (and my husband does, too! haha!)  One we love to watch together is “Chopped“. I would TOTALLY rock at that show! AND I just got the chance to with this “Chopped at Home” challenge!

Chopped Ingredients

I was asked by the folks at Chopped and Sargento to come up with a dish using the following ingredients:

Oyster Crackers
Sargento Cheese – 4 State Cheddar

I have this in the bag! I LOVE all of these ingredients! The first thing that came to mind that was inline with how I cook at home, was to make a kale salad with a delicious, good for you dressing! It was perfect!

Kale Salad

And, let me tell you it was the bomb! I loved this salad! And it was simple to make. Fresh ingredients that are good for you. You can’t go wrong!

Kale Salad

I have to say that my favorite thing about this salad was the Sargento 4 State Cheddar Cheese crisps. They gave the salad a ton of flavor and crunch. I love a good salad but I want it to have a good flavor. These crisps did just that! Try making them for yourself at home. They’re super easy to make! But be warned – your family will keep walking by and grabbing them before you have your salad all put together. They are a pretty good snack!

Kale Salad

Available in 30 versatile varieties, unique blends and distinct cuts, Sargento Shredded Cheese is always cut from blocks of 100% real, natural cheese.
