There are several people in my life that have refused to eat kale…
until they try this salad. It’s delicious AND good for you. I know! Crazy, right?
But listen. If I can get my friend Katie to eat it, you’ll be fine. She’s my most opinionated food friend, but I’ve brought her around on several things.
We’re still working on getting her to eat onions, though.
I’ve made this salad several different ways, but this one is my favorite. The only thing I left out of the recipe that I always add, is cheese. Goat cheese is my favorite, but I’ve also used feta and cotija. Without the cheese, this salad is incredibly good for you and packed with nutrition. It checks all the boxes: vegetarian, vegan, paleo, keto, sugar free, dairy free, gluten free, blah, blah, blah. So if you’re trying to eat clean, this one’s for you.
You can buy big bunches of kale or a bag of pre-chopped kale. Either way, make sure you remove all of the stems. They’re woody and not fun to eat.
For the citrus, I used little tangerines that are easy to peel, but you can use oranges, grapefruit, whatever you prefer. You can also switch out the nuts and seeds too. Pistachios and sunflower seeds are yummy.
