It’s no secret that I love Kale Salad. If you’re a DOC client, and I’ve been your doula - especially for Postpartum & Infant Care - then you’ve probably seen me throw down a medium sized mixing bowl of this yummy goodness at lunch. It’s a favorite when I meal prep for clients and at DOC team building meetings.
The possibilities for Kale Salad are endless. Start with a vinaigrette base. Add some chopped Kale. Add some more veg, protein of choice, a healthy fat like cheese or avocado, maybe some nuts or seeds and you have a really quick and nutritious meal on your hands. And we all know that those leafy greens are good for you.
I often get asked what kind of vinaigrette I buy.
The answer is: I don’t.
It takes me more time to run to the store and walk the aisles than it does to whip up the dressing in the bowl while I make the salad.
A modestly stocked pantry can yield wonderful results.
