I found packaged organic kale salad at my local Whole Foods and I thought this Kale Salad with Oranges would be a quick way to prepare this #1 rated plant-based superfood! I added mandarin oranges from a can for speed, but you could add fresh orange sections as a fresher option.
Kale has been the #1 nutritious food for several years. Although sometimes it can be tougher to eat than, say, a spinach salad. Here's the trick, Massage the kale with your hands using a little avocado. This relaxes the kale and makes it more palatable to eat and it makes your hands soft, too.
Yep, get your hands right in there and squeeze, squeeze, squeeze. It’s fun! Add walnuts, oranges, the dressing and voila – you’re ready to chomp on a super easy, super nutritious kale salad. I added mandarin oranges from a can for speed, but you could add fresh orange sections.
Serve with half a sandwich or soup for a well-rounded lunch or dinner, or you can load up a huge bowl, maybe adding some tempeh and call it a meal.
Accompany this salad with a plant-based meal:
- Avocado, Papaya Gazpacho
- Easy Chana Masala With Chickpeas & Yams
- Sheet Pan Ratatouille with Creamy Polenta
- Tempeh Salad Sandwich
