As I’ve shared in the past, kale is a major favorite food of mine. I’m not really a huge salad lover (beside caprese, I love it!) so when I make my own salad recipe, I try to make it different. I made this kale salad for lunch recently and it was so tasty, I had to share. Here’s how I made my fresh citrus & kale salad:
4 cups kale, chopped
1/2 cup broccoli slaw
20 raw almonds
1 clove garlic, chopped
salt & pepper to taste
1tsp olive oil
1. First, you’ll need to warm the kale in a pan with the olive oil & garlic on medium heat. Cook for about 5 minutes, tossing every minute or so. Add a pinch of salt & pepper to taste. Be careful – you don’t need much salt! When the kale is ready, let it cool in a bowl.
2. As the kale cools, cut an orange into wedges & remove the peel.
3. Wash the broccoli slaw and toss with the kale.
4. Sprinkle the almonds on top (you can also use almond slivers) and add the oranges.
I enjoyed mine at room temp, but you can certainly chill the salad before serving. The citrus adds a little sweet tanginess while the almonds serve as the protein. I love this salad!
