Dharma Kale Salad

_MG_2003

I know this picture looks alot like my Moroccan Spiced Lemon Dressing recipe I posted not to long ago – but I swear it is WAY different!

You know when you get into something & you just cant get enough of it – whether it be a pair of great fitting jeans, a tv show that you can watch an episode marathon of or a meal that you crave, even right after you just take that last bite? Right now I am into my one flannel, the TV show Revenge (don’t judge) & this salad!

I am talking about the Dharma Kale Salad. I love it, can’t get enough of it – just finished it for lunch & already thinking about making it for lunch tomorrow. I mentioned in a previous post that I finished reading The Beauty Detox Solution, well this is a salad that the author, Kimberly Snyder mentions in her chapters. Hope you enjoy!

  1. Wash & dry 1 head of kale – strip the leaves off the thick spine stem by hand, discard stalk & place leaves into a large bowl
  2. Add a pinch of sea salt into the bowl & begin to break up the kale into smaller pieces (the salt tenderizes the kale)
  3. Wash & add: 1/2C sprouts, 1/4C flat leaf parsley & 1 diced tomato
  4. Cut an avocado in half & scoop out one side into the bowl
  5. Cut a large lemon in half & squeeze the juice from one half into the bowl
  6. Add: 1T dulse flakes, 1T, nutritional yeast, 1T hemp seeds & cayenne pepper to taste (I add 1/4t)
  7. Now get in there with your hands & mix up this salad!

This salad is so sensational that I even got the hub into it! The creamy avocado, lemon juice & nutritional yeast really give this salad a killer taste & it is packed with antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes & minerals (all the nutritional building blocks your body needs)!

Moroccan Spiced Lemon Dressing

_MG_1788

Nom nom nom, this dressing is delish!  There’s a new salad joint right by my apartment and they have the most unusual salad dressings, this one included. So I decided to give it a whirl & test it out in my kitchen – needless to say I have now been making this dressing for a few days in a row!

  1. In a medium bowl combine: 1/4C fresh lemon juice, 2T Fage 0%, 1.5t honey & 1/4t ground of each of the following cumin, cinnamon, ginger & salt 
  2. Whisk in 1T EVOO (to 1/4C, I only used 1T) slowly so dressing becomes smooth & emulsified

I am currently addicted to kale so I have yet to try this dressing on any other salad base, but I am sure it would taste just as yum & will add a bit of Moroccan spice to any green!

  1. If you are using kale, rip the leaves off of the stems in tiny pieces & place in large bowl – add a pinch of sea salt & massage the kale with your hands
  2. Add in whatever veggies you may have in your fridge! I threw in tomatoes, radishes, yellow pepper, celery & dulse flakes.

Toss the salad with the dressing & munch on this blend to get bikini body ready (yes, SO soon!) and you won’t regret it!
