A nutritious Winter-y kale kumquats salad! Topped with crunchy walnuts, pomegranate aerials and drizzled with pomegranate molasses vinaigrette. A little “something green” to start the new year right!
Happy New Year Y’all!!
I’m a pretty big fan of colorful salads. I believe that they make the world a better place, and I’ve been waiting for the Holidays to get close to share this recipe with you, I’m pretty sure it’ll be the “healthy star” on your table, since our menus during this time is all butter, sugar and cream, lol! This is the harsh truth! This is also a great and quick plant-based dish for your vegan guests and yourself.
One year has come to an end and a new year has just started, I know how some people hang so many resolutions, hopes and dreams at the beginning of every year. Most of the time they represent something we want to perceive so hard over and over again but probably fail to achieve. For those of you who are trying to follow a healthy lifestyle this year (my-every-year-resolution), let me introduce you to this recipe over here. It’s full of all the good nutrients your body needs, and the great news is that it tastes PHENOMENAL!
This salad can give you the right amounts of nutrients: you get the fiber, protein and carbs amount from quinoa, Vitamin C from the kumquats & kale, Vitamin A from the kale, the good fats from walnuts and the good sugar from the pomegranates. Perfect as a light lunch or a meatless Monday dinner option! Ba Da Bum! There you have it!
This gorgeous salad is full of flavor and texture. You’ll taste fresh kale, tangy kumquats, sweet pomegranates and crunchy walnuts in one bite! It’s PERFECTION if you ask me! Plus it would make a rather gorgeous addition to any menu.
Well at least I know I should add some green to my table to balance the outrageous amount of gravy & cookies I consumed last year!
