I use Kale in veggie drinks, salads and other dishes. It is a super food and is one of the most nutrient dense foods that's packed with vitamin C and K. It is a good, plant-based source of calcium. It's also a weight-loss friendly food!
I wanted to create a Kale salad that included a softer lettuce, to balance it out. Kale tends to be a little more coarse. I chose Butter lettuce because I love how light weight it is and the leaves are big enough that they can be used as a substitute for bread for wraps, sandwiches or burgers..
This salad is light, fresh and includes some of my favorite foods I like to eat. It's so delicious you can have it for lunch or dinner. We roast cauliflower, asparagus and broccoli on a regular basis and use it inside salads for lunch the next day, or as a side dish for dinner.
What's in it...
2 c. organic butter lettuce
2 c. organic baby kale
1/4 c. organic swiss cheese shavings
6 organic button size mushrooms, diced
1/2 c. organic roasted cauliflower
4-5 oz organic grilled chicken breasts, diced
1 tbs. organic extra virgin olive oil
1-2 tsp aged white wine vinegar
1 tsp pesto
How to make it...
Add butter lettuce, kale, swiss cheese, mushrooms and cauliflower to a large salad bowl. Place your diced chicken in a small bowl and blend in the pesto. Mix the pesto chicken in with your salad. In a small bowl add your olive oil and vinegar. Mix the two ingredients with a fork and pour it over your salad. Toss your salad and serve.
This serves 2-3 people.
Try it, it's good for you!
