The blahs of winter can really get us down, and we often struggle to find a new and vibrant salad to perk up our menus. We decided to stroll the market and create a delish taste thrill of our own.  Here’s what we came up with…and it does not disappoint. 

Kale and Romaine Salad with Blood Oranges and Asian Vinaigrette

For the salad:

3 cups julienned Lacinato Kale

3 cups chopped romaine

1/2 diced orange pepper

1 segmented blood orange

1 diced avocado

1/4 c salted pistachios 


Add your kale to a large bowl and drizzle with 1/2 T olive oil and a pinch of salt 

Then add your romaine…

Now add your blood oranges….isn’t that color divine????


Your orange pepper goes in next 

And then zee avocado….remember, she’s a good fat!!


Now scatter those pistachios about  

The colors are amazing . 

Now you’ll toss with this easy vinaigrette:

3 T rice wine vinegar

2 T sesame oil

1T soy sauce 

1t honey 

Cracked black pepper 


Combine all in a jar and shake vigorously.
Pour the vinaigrette over the salad and toss  

Et voila…a beautiful and mouthwatering salad. 

Makes 4 side servings or 2 main servings .
