A few weeks ago I went to see my beautiful friend Alana before she jetted off on her adventure around Australia! Before I left she gave me a beautiful big bunch of freshly grown Kale that she had grown from scratch.
So when I get home I wanted to find a way to use the kale in a dish without taking away from that delicious sweet-bitter taste that I love it!
So I decided a salad was my best bet.
Obviously I used all of my favourite salad ingredients, but it would make no difference if you were to substitute them for your own!
1 Carrot, grated
1 Raw beetroot, grated
2 Cups of kale, lightly chopped into bite size pieces
1/2 Hass avocado
1/2 Cup chopped broccolini
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Tablespoon dijon mustard
1 Teaspoon 100% maple syrup
Juice from half of a lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
Make your salad and arrange on a plate or in a bowl. Place all of the vinaigrette ingredients into a cup or a small bowl and whisk until they are combined, then add the seasoning to your liking. Pour over salad and you have a deliciously quick and easy way to get your daily dose of vitamins!
Also, if you would like to follow my friends Alana and her sister Koren, while they jet off on an adventure, you can find them at shemakesmagic.com! They have a great philosophy and are never short for recipes, alternatives to nasty chemical cleaners/body soaps/make up etc and they have created a great community for people who think alike! I’m sure they would love to see you there!
