Looking for new healthy recipes that are nutritious, flavorful, and fulfilling? If so, then you have come to the right place. This salad has been one of my go-to recipes for years.
It’s a basic salad recipe, but it is 100% plant-based and filled with nutritious vegetables and plant-protein.
I usually will stick to the same type of greens and dressing for this salad, but will occasionally switch up the vegetables. Some days it’s just red bell peppers and cucumbers, other days I add radishes and carrots.
You are in control of this salad, so pick your favorite veggies and eat a healthy meal tonight.
The greens I like to use are Tuscan/lacinato kale leaves. They are on the bitter side, so I recommend massaging them with 1/2 lemon juice before adding your veggies. Once the leaves reduce in size, you have perfect, tender salad greens.
As for the plant-protein, I would add crunchy chickpeas, hemp hearts, and sesame seeds. I will usually do 2 tablespoons of hemp hearts per serving for an extra boost of protein.
I hope you all love this salad and it becomes a go-to recipe in your home too!
