Sometimes, I just want an easy lunch that’s no fuss. For me, I like a salad that’s filling but has a lot of different ingredients, something that’s colorful and doesn’t need any dressing because what’s going on is so perfect. I tend to avoid dressing because I feel like I’d rather my calories come from cheese, or avocado, or some delicious nuts and seeds, then have greens and a thick layer of vinaigrette.
This salad was just made by what I had lying around – I love the balance of rich, creamy avocado with sweet strawberries and the crunch of the radish. Texture in my salad is a must – I prefer to have more toppings then greens, really!
Serves: 1 (perfect for a lunch salad!)
2 cups kale
1/2 cup cashews
1. Chop your kale, strawberries, cashews (if whole), radishes, and avocado. Pro tip: Pull the leaves off of the rib and chop those. Then, mince the ribs, too, and throw them in for some extra crunch!
2. Add all to a bowl and mix well, dressing with oil and vinegar if you so desire. That’s it!
