One of the simplest tips I can give someone to help increase their veggie intake is to include a salad at lunch and/or dinner. I know it can be a real challenge to get fussy eaters (big and small) to eat things like kale. Believe it or not, I can relate! Kale is not my favourite veggie but I have found that if it's hidden in a smoothie, massaged into a giant savoury salad or delicately paired with fruit like in this particular salad, I'll eat it no problem.
Summer is a really great time to infuse your salads with a little fruit - it's abundant, in season and ripe!
Count on this recipe being quick, delicious, a source of healthy fats, deeply nourishing but best of all, this recipe will have everyone asking for seconds!
Summer Kale Salad With Fruit
2 cups savoy cabbage, shredded
1 cup cantaloupe, cut into bite sized pieces
5 tuscan kale leaves, torn
8-10 strawberries, quartered
2 oranges, segmented
1/2 cup almonds, roasted * (I buy raw and roast my own)
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1 tbsp coconut oil (I used St. Francis Liquid Coconut Oil)
squeeze the juice from the 2 segmented oranges above
pinch of sea salt & black pepper (to enhance flavours)
- To roast your own almonds: Preheat oven to 350F and lay raw almonds evenly out on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, flipping halfway through. Allow them to cool slightly before adding them to the salad.
- Combine all of the ingredients above in a large salad bowl and top with coconut oil and juice from your segmented oranges. Toss well and serve.
This salad pairs beautifully with an organic white wine 😊 Enjoy!
