Kale, Strawberry and Almond Salad


Kale, Strawberry and Almond Salad

kale salad

Summers best fruit is here! Strawberries, well at least one of the best. Kale is up and ready to pick. Here is  a simple salad with an orange vinaigrette.

 Add a little feta or goats cheese if you like. I also tried this with a basil oil and it as good to me. Freshest strawberries make this salad taste the best. Pick your own

at a local grower or check your famer’s market for the kale and strawberries.

Ingredients:

Bunch of raw kale

Fresh strawberries. sliced, use as many as you want

Toasted almonds, as many as you like

Vinaigrette:

1 small orange, zested and juiced
1/2  lime, zested and juiced
1 tsp of honey
1/4 cup of olive oil
Salt & Pepper to taste

Add all of the ingredients for the vinaigrette into a bowl or measuring cup and whisk well. Set it aside.

If using young kale, use the entire leaf. If larger kale, tear out the stems and tear into bite size pieces. Wash in a salad spinner.

In a salad bowl or large bowl, layer the kale, sliced strawberries and sprinkle on toasted almonds, drizzle with vinaigrette.

You can also make this plate by plate. Just layer on a plate and drizzle with the vinaigrette, no need to toss.

Drop some cheese on if desired. Enjoy the taste of summer!
