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)

Directions

  • 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 ๐Ÿ˜Š Enjoy!
