  • 6 cups cubed bread, gluten free if necessary
  • 1 (15 ounce) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

  3. Add all vinaigrette ingredients to a small bowl or jar and whisk until combined.
  4. In a large bowl add the roasted vegetables, toasted bread, beans and kale. Mix until combined and then pour over desired amount of dressing. If making salad ahead of time, wait until serving to add dressing.
