Good Monday to you all. I've been obsessed with this salad for the last five or six months now. I eat it so often I don't even think of it as something to photograph and blog about, but since so many of my friends and family have requested the recipe I think its time to let you all in on this simple and delicious salad. The ingredients definitely vary depending on what's in my fridge/ pantry but the star remains - the simple dressing and the kale! The photo is just one example including fresh green peas & purple cabbage. Basically everything but the kale, tomatoes & some sort of cabbage is optional. The dressing is also not exact just taste until you are happy with the acid, salt garlic balance. You can also add lentils or beans to the salad for extra protein, or serve with your favorite entree - anything works!
organic kale - julienned
red cabbage (or green) - julienned
romaine lettuce - julienned (optional)
cherry tomatoes - divided
avocado - chopped
hearts of palm - sliced/ chopped
fresh green peas (optional)
radishes - thinly sliced (optional)
garlic - 1 clove minced
lemon juice - squeeze
apple cider vinegar - splash
s & p - to taste
olive oil - drizzle
You pretty much just toss everything together until the salad is dressed really well, and seasoned to your taste. If you omit the romaine lettuce the salad will stand up over night and be great the next day. Feel free to play around with adding other veggies you like and make this your very own.
