Orange Kale Salad

Hi guys;) For lunch today I made a delicious Orange Kale salad. I feel like salads really get a really bad rep, because most of them aren’t very exciting. When I first started eating healthy, all I made was salads, and they were really boring and not very tasty. This kale salad, though, is what a salad should be: fresh, light and delicious!

I know that I’ve posted a lot of recipes this month, and that’s mainly because I’m in a book drought right now and I don’t know what to read next. I’m re-reading the Divergent series. If anyone has any book recommendations for me, please let me know! Anyways, here’s the recipe for my Orange Kale Salad.

Orange Kale Salad

Serves: 2 people as a main and 4 people as a side

Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups chopped kale
  • 1 Orange, cut into small chunks
  • 1 Carrot; use a vegetable peeler to create carrot ribbons
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 can of white beans, drained and rinsed

For the dressing:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Toss all of the salad ingredients in a bowl.
  2. In a smaller bowl, whisk the dressing ingredients together.
  3. Add the dressing to the salad and mix well.
  4. Enjoy!

Hope you like this quick and delicious salad! Keep your eyes open for my April Bullet Journal Set- Up coming later this week!

Yours Truly,
