Kale Chicken Salad with Orange Cumin Vinaigrette

On my last-ish day of winter break, I went over to Jun’s to hang out and see everyone before I ran off back to the bitter, bitter cold. He’d made a bowl of guacamole that we (me, Jun, Steph) demolished (we rather guiltily hid all evidence of its existence) and a gargantuan bowl of salad (recipe from here!).

F: Thank you! :D :D :D
J: It’s my job to feed you. :]
F: Happy wife, happy life!
