At the moment we have got a lot of kale in the garden ready for harvesting. Kale is one vegetable that I think often gets over looked. We get bored of eating it the same way, steamed, so I am always looking for new ways to add this super food to our diets. Now that we have had our first frost I know that the kale will be even sweeter and perfect for salad!
One thing that kale is great for is as a salad. It has a firmer texture and fuller flavour than lettuce and, in my opinion, makes a more filling salad. Today's recipe contains 6 delicious vegetables and is jam packed with goodness. It is perfect as a lunch or goes great with a jacket potato.
This is what I did...
Ingredients - serve 2 - 3 as a main meal or 4 - 5 as a side dish
50g kale leaves, stalks removed
1 orange pepper, thinly sliced
2 salad tomatoes, chopped
4 radish, trimmed and thinly sliced
2 white cabbage leaves, shredded
1 lime, juiced
3 tbsp fat free vinaigrette
1 - Place all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl
2 - Mix all of the vegetables together, I find it easier to use my hands!
3 - Squeeze over the juice of one lime and pour over the fat free vinaigrette and mix thoroughly and serve. If you are making it in advance keep in the fridge until ready to eat
This salad is not only super healthy but is a real satisfyingly filling salad. I love seasonal vegetables and this is certainly a salad that can be enjoyed using one of my favourite winter vegetables.
Best of all, if you are following the Slimming World eating plan this is a syn free lunch and full of speed vegetables!
