I had a friend over for a quick lunch yesterday, which inspired me to make a healthy, hearty salad with some fresh produce. This is an extremely simple and fast recipe, and will keep in the fridge for a couple of days if you have leftovers.
With some major superfoods in it like kale and white beans, this salad will certainly fill you up and keep you going. A perfect light salad for the weekend!
2 large bunches kale, rinsed and de-stalked
1 can white beans, rinsed (preferably organic)
1 cup crumbled goat cheese
11/2 cup walnuts
5 baby tomatoes, cut into slices
For the dressing:
Half a ripe avocado
3 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp honey
salt and pepper to taste
- Steam the kale, then toss it with the rest of the salad ingredients.
- Puree the dressing ingredients and add the mixture to the salad.
- Toss again and enjoy!
