Sweet Kale Salad

Enjoying one of my two favorite meals today:  soup and sandwich.  My other favorite meal is Sweet Kale Salad and sandwich (actually, any salad is my favorite, but Sweet Kale especially delicious!).

The sandwich is pretty simple.  My local gluten free bakery, Bridge Baking, makes a special vegan gluten free bread that is to die for.  I just toast a couple pieces of bread and slather on some Grapeseed Vegenaise and add the following:

  • Thinly sliced roma tomato
  • Avocado
  • Thinly sliced black olives
  • Spouts (I think I had broccoli sprouts today)
  • Baby spring greens

Of course, this is just a list of suggestions.  You could also add mushrooms, pickles or relish or your favorite soft raw veggies.

My soup today was Amy’s Organic Lentil Vegetable soup.  Love Amy’s soups!!ES_SKS_BAG_12OZ

But this post was suppose to be about my Sweet Kale Salad!! So …..

I LOVE the Sweet Kale Salad kit from Eat Smart Salads (of course, 12 oz. is not big enough for me!  I buy the 28 oz. bags from Costco!).

So, here is what I do:  I take out a little less than half the veggies (from the 28 oz. bag) and one of the dressing packets.  Then I add the following:

  • 1/2 or so cup chopped cauliflower
  • Sprouts, whatever I have on hand
  • 1/2 or so cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup or so grated carrots
  • 1/3 up or so raisins

I mix it all up and add a bit of my own salad Ranch style dressing.  Makes a perfect salad!!

Also, I have half of the salad kit left that I make with the prepackaged cranberries and pumpkin seeds — so I have another meal with a different type Kale Salad!!

So how is that for a lazy day meal with a minimum of prep and cooking??

Sorry, we ate the salad so fast (My husband loves it too!), I didn’t get any pictures!!
