Orange Infused Walnut Kale Salad Recipe

—  found in  Food  —

What does kale + orange + omega3 equal? A beautifying, satisfying, detoxifying and brain-boosting lunch. This recipe was all that and more! Forget the old notion that healthy food is tasteless, bland and boring because this couldn't be further from the truth. If you are stuck in sandwich-lunch-land then you must join me on my healthy island of delicious lunch bowls.

Last night I made this salad dressing at dinner to go with my leafy greens and then again today for lunch because it was SOOO freakin delish!

Ingredients:

6-8 handfuls of kale (I used baby kale that was organic and pre-washed)

3/4 cup walnuts

2 small oranges sliced

Dressing:

1/3 cup sesame or extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 cup brown rice vinegar

4 tbsp orange (naturally) flavoured Omega 3 fish oil. (Note: This does NOT have a fishy taste. I used the Genuine Health brand and I bought it from Whole Foods). If you don't have this or you are vegan, then use hemp or flax oil.

1/2 cup fresh mint

Fresh juice from 1 orange

2 tbsp orange rind

Method: Place all your dressing ingredients into a food processor and blend till the mint is completely chopped up, about 30 seconds. Place your leafy greens into a large bowl and toss with the dressing. Sprinkle with walnuts and orange slices.

Makes 4 generous servings.

This salad is great for a cloudy or damp day because it will brighten your spirit, not only because the omega 3s are so brain-loving, but it has such a fresh and uplifting taste.

EnJOY!

Joy

ps. Last week I made a Kale Quinoa Sweet Potato Bowl and enjoyed it for a few lunches.

What is your opinion about kale containing a measurable amount of oxalates and how that affects our bodies? I come from a culture that consumes a lot of kale, so I'd be interested in hearing your take on eating raw kale...good or bad?
