SO why not saving this recipe as a post Christmas detox salad along with my low carb coconut flour porridge for breakfast ? Yep, kale is a wonderful vegetable to reboot your body with vitamins, powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory. It also contains few calories, very little fat – only the good one. And simply taste good! This recipe is also loaded with plant-based protein as I combined kale with quinoa and almond to create a very satisfying salad. It is not because it is a great detox salad that it has to make you feel hungry right? So if you celebrate Christmas in winter and you overload on sweet and fat dishes I would say, this is the best salad to reboot your body after the holiday season.
Personally I will serve this salad on my Christmas table. Christmas in New Zealand is hot and salads are the best combination with Christmas ham. I absolutely love the color of this easy quinoa salad. The combo of red, green and white is so vibrant. If you never made a salad with kale I recommend to always combine the chopped kale leaves with the dressing at least an hour before serving. Store your salad in the fridge and let the leaves soften slightly. Kids will appreciate the salad even more and the flavor will blend even better. Of course don’t forget to remove the hard middle part of each kale leaf. Yuck! this is not good to eat !
