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
Now add your blood oranges….isn’t that color divine????
And then zee avocado….remember, she’s a good fat!!
Now scatter those pistachios about
Now you’ll toss with this easy vinaigrette:
3 T rice wine vinegar
2 T sesame oil
1T soy sauce
Cracked black pepper
Combine all in a jar and shake vigorously.
Pour the vinaigrette over the salad and toss
Makes 4 side servings or 2 main servings .
Let us know what you think of our creative cooking. Feel free to adapt to your liking…that’s what we do!!
