Boy it has been a hot minute since I posted here! Time to get back on track with a nice cool summery salad!! I made this kale salad today and it was so tasty, so healthy, low fat and vegan. I have been dabbling back and forth for awhile but have been cooking to eat only vegan food for the past few weeks. I still cook meat for my guy, but most of the time I make my vegan noms and he partakes, supplementing with some sardines or something 🙂 But back to the salad. Lets get to it.
Kale- 1/2 of a large bunch, washed and stems removed, chopped (I used curly kale but any kind you like works!)
Black pepper, to taste
1/2 large lemon squeezed
1/2 avocado, chopped
1/4 lb mushrooms chopped (about 7)
Green onion tops (about 8) sliced
1/2 jalapeño chopped
1/2 large cucumber chopped
Simply toss all ingredients together!! That is all.
– optional suggested additions would include garbanzos, cooked squash/pumpkin chunks, sunflower seeds…
Serve as is, on the side of some rice/legumes, in a wrap, or with bread and hummus (and green bamboo rice) like I did!
(bread pictured is a vegan wolverine roll from Aridmendi Bakery, FYI)
