Two kale-salad versions for positive conversions

I got to know about kale plant (eatable leaf cabbage), actually as well as about other green salad leaves types…, in the age of 38:) Not too late and just in time! After few experiments – great tasting kale-salad versions are here.

Ingredients for version #1:

  • Lacinato kale, 3-5 leaves
  • Daikon radish, 100 g
  • Radish, 3 pcs
  • Charles butterhead lettuce, 1 pcs
  • Celery stem, 1 pcs
  • Long cucumber, 1 pcs
  • Sweet chestnut, 10-15 pcs
  • Peanuts, roasted and non-salted
  • Turmeric root, fresh and shredded, 2 pcs
  • Dill, fresh
  • Basil leaves, fresh
  • Mint leaves, fresh
  • Flaxseed oil, 2 Tbsp
  • Mustard, 2 tbsp
  • Lemon juice, 10 ml
Main ingredients for kale-salad #1
Additional, but very important ingredients if kale-salad #1: peanuts, mustard, black pepper, turmeric root, lemon juice, plant-based oil

How to make it?

  • Wash all vegetables and herbs
  • Cut midribs of kale leaves (midribs will not be used for a salad)
  • Remove outer layer of celery stem with a peeler
  • Cut kale leaves into small pieces, add mustard, lemon juice and flax-seed oil and massage with a hand
  • Cut all other vegetables, greens, chestnuts and add to massaged kale along with peanuts
  • Mix all together. Its ready!

For the second version of kale salad, some ingredients of salad version #1 are not used and some ingredients are replaced (changes are marked in bold). The method of preparation is the same as in version #1.

Ingredients for version #2:

  • Lacinato kale, 3-5 leaves
  • Daikon radish, 100 g
  • Radish, 3 pcs
  • Charles butterhead lettuce, 1 pcs
  • Celery stem, 1 pcs
  • Long cucumber, 1 pcs
  • Avocado, 1-2 pcs (instead of chestnuts as it was in version#1)
  • Walnuts, soaked overnight (instead of peanuts as it was in version #1)
  • Basil leaves, fresh
  • Mint leaves, fresh
  • Flaxseed oil, 2 Tbsp
  • Mustard, 2 tbsp
  • Lemon juice, 10 ml
  • No turmeric root and no dill (as it was in version #1)

Important notes:

  • Any new salad on this blog is a new taste and somehow unique. All the ingredients are put together with attitude and knowledge to match in taste and nutritional value. Many bloggers tell: “you can replace the ingredients with others according to the taste, what you have in a kitchen right now, etc.” I would say, such replacements usually led to all salads to have the same taste. Even worse, some combinations of plants/species/herbs/dressings/nuts, etc are not reasonable in regards to nutritional compatibility. And lastly, because of untested combinations, a salad could taste not as good as it should really be. Here we try to avoid monotony for taste receptors and failure in taste. So, to get a maximum well (wealthy:)) satisfaction from these salads – it is important to follow the list!
  • A big bowl of this salad (one of the version at one time, of course:)) is a main and the only one dish for the dinner. Enjoy!
