Kale and Zoodle Salad

I’ve been on a salad kick for a couple of weeks now, and have been taking them to work for lunch. I just thought I’d share this one with you tonight.

This is really what I call a “no-brainer”. One bunch of kale washed an taken off the rib, and chopped to your liking. One zucchini washed, peeled and cut with a Julienne peeler, how ever much red (or other type of) onion, diced-sliced-chopped however you prefer, half of a large tomato chopped, and two stocks of celery thinly sliced. Then I sprinkled some sliced roasted almonds on top. It’s that simple.

For the dressing I grabbed a small handful of fresh chives from our garden mixed it with one Tablespoon of German Mustard, two teaspoons of orange juice, two capfulls of Apple Cider Vinegar and a little pepper to taste. I’ve been trying no to use salt much and I’m sure there’s plenty of it in the mustard, so I elected not to add any more.

I poured the dressing on the salad and put it in a lunch container so all I had to do was grab it and go. Pouring the dressing on it and letting in soak in over night helps to tone down the bitter flavor kale can have sometimes and it also helps to soften the leaves a tiny bit. I don’t generally pour dressing on the night before, but in this case I really thought it was a good idea and the salad was deliciously perfect by lunch the next day.

I have never eaten much kale before this summer and I must admit it is really hardy. When I add kale to my salad it holds me over until dinner without any problems.

Enjoy~Bam
