This is another favorite salad of mine. It is pretty simple, but it is another great way to eat kale! I also love how summery the salad looks. And this is a good one for January because oranges are usually one of the best things in the produce aisle this time of year.
Kale Orange and Almond Salad
5 oz kale (1/3rd of a 1 pound bag)
2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
1 large orange
2 tablespoons sliced almonds (raw is best if you can find them)
1 tablespoon flax meal (optional)
1/3 can of white beans or bean of choice (optional)
lime vinaigrette dressing
- Put the kale and onion in your salad bowl. Zest the orange onto your salad.
- Cut the peal off the orange, slice the orange into slices and with your fingers pull the orange segments apart and put them in the salad. Use your knife or a scraper to scrape up any juice that came out when you were cutting the orange and put it in the salad.
- Add the almonds, flax meal (if using) and beans (if using). Toss with the dressing.
