Sweet juicy fruit layered over gently massaged kale, dressed with poppy-seed dressing, this Fruity Kale Salad is loaded with flavor and nutritious goodness.
I have a salad for you today. Yes I’m sharing another salad because I’ve been obsessed with salads this summer, they are so quick and easy to throw together. Salads are the “real” fast food.
To be completely honest when I go grocery shopping I can’t stop myself from loading up my cart with the beautiful produce. My daughter is always fussing about not having a place in the fridge for everything. So I helped her out and made this magnificent Fruity Kale Salad.
In this salad I used kale because that’s what I had and it happens to be one of my favorites, but you can use whatever green happens to be your favorite. Since I had an abundance of fruit I decided to throw it on a bed of kale instead of making a smoothie like I normally do, just wasn’t in a smoothie state of mind.
This salad has over 7 grams of protein, yes there is protein in fruits and veggies, and it will fill and nourish you. But if you want more protein simply add a protein rich grain like quinoa or wheat berries, you can also add a sprinkling of chia seeds. The Vegan Poppy-Seed Dressing I shared a few weeks ago is perfect on this salad or you can drizzle with agave nectar or honey.
- 1 bunch kale
- Juice of one lemon
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
