This kale salad could just make you fall in love with kale. Plus, it has three healthy vegan recipes in one: a salad, a dressing and a hummus.
The dressing is really tasty and creamy, thanks to the cashew butter I used. You can grind up your own cashews, or use another nut/seed butter if you can't find cashew.
I am very lucky to have a company called Nuts To You here in Canada. They don't have a website, and they don't sell outside of Canada as far as I know.
But they make the best nut and seed butters from all varieties (sunflower, pumpkin, cashew, macadamia, almond, peanut, tahini.), they offer organic options for all of them and they dry roast their nuts/seeds.
Their nut/seed butters taste so much better than any others I've tried because they do such a good job of making sure the quality is maintained through the whole process.
Does anyone know of any other companies that make really good nut/seed butters?
But back to the salad! I wanted to make a meal-sized salad, so I got the fresh veggies together and then tossed in some leftover cooked millet and topped it off with some hummus.
One of the key things to keep in mind for healthy eating is that if you have things prepared in advance, it makes it so much easier to toss together a salad like this really quickly.
Prep time: 15 minutes
Makes 3-4 meal-sized salads
