Kaleeeeee salad. This baby is a staple in my world. There is something about kale that is so…. adult. Like, look at me go. I ate KALE today. Not just normal lettuce, but nutrient-packed kale.
And okay so kale mightttt not be the most exciting food, but if you dress it up right it tastes damn good if you ask me. So why should you bother eating kale? Well.. there are TONSSSS of health benefits.
Here are my faves:
- Kale promotes healthy skin and hair!! Yaaaaasssss give it to me.
- It is great for good digestion. Healthy insides = winning.
- Improves bone health due to the high amount of vitamin K.
- Kale supports the health of your heart!
So even though kale isn’t super exciting in terms of it’s taste, it is an important thing to mix into your diet. AND, my dear friends, I am here to help you make it taste great. Example 1: my Blueberry Kale Salad.
What’s in it:
- Thin sliced almonds
- Radishes (about 5 or 6)
- Generous handful of fresh blueberries
- Dino kale
- 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1.5 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- Squirt of dijon mustard
- Dash of maple syrup
- Fine ground salt
Okie so start by putting all your ingredients for your salad dressing in a little jar a shaking about. Set that bad boy aside.
Now, chop up your dino kale so that it is sliced nice and thin. Take a potato peeler, and slice up your radishes. Or you can use a knife to do this, but I yolo’d and used a potato peeler lol. Take your kale, radishes, and blueberries and put in a large bowl. Cover in your dressing and toss! Put that on a plate and generously sprinkle your sliced almonds on top. Doneeeeezo.
