Savory Vegan Kale Salad

July 18, 2014
Yummy basic vegan kale salad

This recipe has an incredible nutritional profile, is filling and completely versatile. I often make this salad for dinner and pack the leftovers in my lunch the following day.

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch lacianto kale
  • 1 medium diced avocado
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon (juiced)
  • 1-2 teaspoons of pink salt

Method: 

  • Thoroughly rinse and pat dry the kale with a clean towel.
  • Tear the kale from its stem and then into small, bite-sized pieces.
  • In a mixing bowl combine kale and diced avocado. Massage the avocado into the kale until the consistency becomes smooth and creamy.
  • Once the kale and avocado are massaged together, add in olive oil, salt and lemon juice.
  • Continue to massage until the ingredients are evenly combined.
  • Add in any other desired ingredients and chill for 15 minutes before serving.

Suggestions: 

+ Try adding nuts and/or seeds for extra protein and texture.

+ Consider adding either fresh or sautéed vegetables before chilling.

+ Instead of fresh lemon juice, swap for 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, liquid aminos, or nama shoyu instead.

+ Use spices to play with the flavor profile. I often use garlic powder, white pepper, onion salt and tarragon.

Note:

Always wash your hands prior to massaging ingredients.

Enjoy!

    Thanks for your recipes, Hannah. I wonder if you know about a product I love and use a lot. For instance it would be a good substitute for the lemon in this kale salad recipe. It’s Trader Joe’s Gourmet Orange Muscat Champagne Vinegar. I think it’s a fantastic product.

      Hi Frankye, I personally have not tried the Orange Muscat Champagne Vinegar. I looked up the ingredients and it sounds like a fantastic and versatile product! I’m quite positive replacing the lemon juice with this would taste great! I will have to pick up a bottle the next time I’m at Trader Joe’s.
