One of the easiest, tastiest, nutritious, quickest perfect winter salads for weeknights. It’s also perfect for meal prep as the ingredients get better as they marinate. I’ve been making this salad for years, and even though I’m a fan of hot foods in cold weather, I make exception for this. If you don’t like kale, this salad will make you a fan! And it’s ready in 15 min.
This salad has all the added benefits of seeds, nuts and an easy miso dressing (here’s your chance to get your dose of fermented foods). ⠀ ⠀
Juice of 1 lemon⠀
Extra virgin olive oil – 3 tablespoons⠀
Miso paste – 1 tablespoon⠀
Kale – 1 bunch cut into ribbons (any type of kale you like)⠀
Carrots – 3 medium shredded⠀
Red onion – 1/4 thinly sliced⠀
Feta cheese – ¼ cup crumbled⠀ (optional)
Walnuts – 2 tablespoon⠀
Sunflower seeds – 2 tablespoon⠀
Mix the dressing first, and set aside. I usually make it at the base of a big glass mixing bowl.
Add all the salad ingredients to the bowl. Massage it in by hands. Let it marinate for 10-15 minutes. Enjoy!
