Sunday from Scratch ~ Super Food Salad

This ain’t your mama’s salad.

Except I got the recipe from my mom…so maybe it is?

Hmm.

When I was told that kale, cabbage and red onion was being served- the first thing I thought was bad breath.

And then I tried it, got hooked, made it for the roomie, she’s hooked…boyfriend is next…it’ll hook him for sure. And then there is you dear reader. You’re on deck!

It’s full of super foods like kale & cabbage, AND it’s raw, AND it’s made from scratch.
Even though it has Parmesan cheese, is it still considered ‘clean eating?’ Someone please advise.

Super Food Salad: Makes 2-3 servings (Best served fresh and cold)Image

Salad:
2 handfuls of raw kale (I buy the chopped bag at TJs)

1 handful of raw cabbage (shredded white cabbage- sold at TJs)

2 TBS chopped red onion

1-2 TBS parmesan cheese

1/4 cup chopped nuts (mom uses peanuts, I used almonds/walnuts. It’s all yum!)

Dressing:
1 TBS dijon or spicy brown mustard

1 TBS olive oil

1 tsp red wine vinegar (apple cider vinegar works too)

salt & pepper

Notes:
-Make sure your kale, cabbage and onion are chopped and/or minced. You want this to be somewhat of a ‘slaw’ type salad.

-Mix the dressing on the side and throw everything into a container with a lid.

-Shake what your mama gave ya.

-Put it in the fridge and serve it cold! I also like to saute chicken-apple sausage and toss it in.

Enjoy!
