EASY KALE SALAD


  Monday, 6.17.19


If you know me, you know I LOVE to make a good, delicious salad. It's my favorite thing to make, to eat & to bring to any social gathering. The number one salad I get asked for the recipe is my 'easy kale salad', so I thought it was about time that I took the time to share it with you all, too!

So here's what you'll need :

- 1 bag of Organic Chopped Kale (I LOVE & prefer the Wholefoods 365 one pictured below)
- Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
- Organic Lemon Juice
- Organic Olive Oil
- Nutritional Yeast
- Hemp hearts
- Chile Lime Seasoning (from Trader Joes)
- Any type of good salt such as Himalayan, Celtic, Maine Made Sea Salt
- A few Green Onions
- 1 Avocado
- Handful of Cherry Tomatoes

OPTIONAL TO ADD :
- Pumpkin & Sunflower Seeds
- Microgreens

You will notice that I am giving you the directions for this salad 'loosely' & I am doing this on purpose. One of the BEST parts of this salad is how EASY it is to put together. You really do NOT need to measure anything out & you can also easily add more to it (like cucumbers, beets, etc) and it will still taste amazing. It's such a #WINWIN.

So let me walk you through it real quick.

You will want to throw a BUNCH of the chopped kale into a BIG bowl.
I usually make at least half the bag because the other beauty of this salad is that it definitely lasts into the next day & doesn't get soggy.
I also personally really think this particular kale from Wholefoods is the best due to its texture & cut :

Next I drizzle a dash of lemon juice & olive oil, & a couple splashes of organic apple cider vinegar.

I throw in a generous amount of hemp hearts & season a bit with nutritional yeast,
a good salt (such as Maine Made Sea Salt pictured), as well as a couple dashes of Chile Lime seasoning!

Then I mix it all up & make sure it's well coated. I dice up some yummy green onions, cherry tomatoes & an avocado,
then toss them into it all.

OPTIONAL TO ADD
in the end are some pumpkin & sunflower seeds for an added protein crunch,
as well as some microgreens for added nutritional boost!

Last step, if time permitting,
I cover it & place in the fridge to let it all marinate a bit
BUT it is still totally ready to eat & delicious even if you don't have time for that step!

Let me know whatchya think if you give it a whirl.
Enjoy!
