Another summer salad recipe for you! I’ve actually already done a simple massaged kale salad recipe, but I decided I wanted to mix it up a bit and have something different!
Kale is a SUPER POWERHOUSE OF AMAZING-NESS.
I mean, you probably already know the multitude of reasons why you should be eating kale now. It’s got a ton of Vitamin K, A, C, calcium, iron, filled with iron and fibre and so much more. Seriously, you need to get on this bandwagon if you haven’t already!
I made a super creamy (but vegan!) tahini dressing which is perfect with the slightly bitter leaves of the kale and the orange segments really lift the dish and make it summery and the juice makes it sweet and delicious!
I also added chickpeas on top just for some protein and fibre to keep me full, but it’s still great without and you can serve it as a side salad. I also think it would taste great with some roasted almonds for some crunch!
Hope you have a wonderful day!
Kale and Orange Salad vegan, gluten free, dairy free
3 or 4 handfuls of raw kale (make sure to take off the stems)
1 orange, segmented
optional: chickpeas, chicken, roasted almonds.
Massage the kale with the dressing.
Add the oranges and fold in with your fingers so they don’t break down.
Put in the fridge for an hour or two if you have time so the kale can breakdown and take in the dressing.
When serving, top with the chickpeas or roast nuts, as you don’t them to get soggy in the fridge.
