Ingredient Substitutions And Suggestions
You can definitely change and mix things up a bit when preparing this recipe. For example, you can add pickled onion, cucumbers, dried cranberries, or tomatoes, just like with grain bowls. The recipe might look a bit like California salad with those ingredients, but that's fine.
As for the herbs, you can put whatever you want to use to elevate the recipe. You can go for cilantro, mint, parsley, dill, or basil, whatever you want! You can substitute goat cheese with shaved parmesan too.
Now, the lemon shallot dressing provides some acidity to balance the salad. But you can also use chipotle dressing if you'd like.
For the caramelized walnuts, you can use pecans instead. We will provide a recipe for the caramelization here, but you can use store-bought candied nuts too!

It takes under 15 minutes — that already includes the prep and cooking time! Well, let's not dilly-dally anymore. Here are the steps to make this greens on-the-go recipe:
To make the caramelized walnuts:
Step 1: Prepare The Ingredients For The Caramelized Walnuts
You can use store-bought candied walnuts, but you can also make your own in just 5 minutes. Over medium heat, throw your walnuts, sugar, and butter together on a non-stick pan.
Cook them for five minutes, making sure to coat the nuts in the melting sugar. Sprinkle some salt on top.
Step 2: Transfer Right Away
You want to make sure to transfer the nuts on to a sheet of parchment right away. This will prevent the caramelized nuts from clumping. Separate each piece from each other after transferring them.
To make the greens on-the-go bowl:
Step 1: Prepare All The Ingredients
You want to prepare all your ingredients so you can put them all on your mixing bowl together. You can measure and cut the ingredients that need to be prepared. Afterward, you want to put them somewhere near so you can reach them right away.
Step 2: Mix In The Bowl
Prepare a big salad bowl so you can mix everything together. You want to start with your base of greens, like kale and lettuce. Then, drizzle a bit of dressing over them, being careful not to saturate the greens.
Mix them well and add the other ingredients as you go. Top the greens with cheese after putting dressing based on your desired amount.
Step 3: Serve And Enjoy
Serve the salad immediately so you can enjoy it while it's fresh!
How To Store Greens On The Go
This salad could serve around two people, but you can definitely eat it alone because of how delicious it is! But if you find yourself with some leftovers, there's no need to worry as it's so easy to store this salad!
Make sure to transfer it to an airtight container and refrigerate right away. The thing with this salad is it might not last long because of the sauce. But you can definitely eat it the next day! If you haven't poured sauce over some of the ingredients, then you can store them separately as well.
