Choice Salad with Lemon Maple Dressing

Author: Recipe courtesy of Choice Health Bar

Dressing Ingredients:

  • 2-4 Meyer lemons, enough to render 1/4 cup lemon zest and 1 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup red onions, finely minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • handful of fresh herbs (basil, parsley, mint, chives . . . your choice), chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

Salad Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup slivered onions
  • 1 large bunch curly kale, stems removed
  • large handful of arugula or other salad greens
  • 1/2 cup almonds, roughly chopped
  • 1 cucumber, seeded and cut into half-moons
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 beet, peeled and cut into cubes

Dressing Directions: On a cutting board, sprinkle herbs, minced onions and garlic until macerated to a pulp. Whisk all ingredients together, except the olive oil. Whisk in olive oil.

Salad Directions: Break kale into bite-sized pieces, removing hard stems or veins. Fold 1/4 cup dressing into the kale, tossing to coat, adding more dressing if desired. Add arugula, almonds and cucumbers, tossing to coat. (Add more dressing and salt, to taste.) In a separate bowl, toss beets with a little dressing. Garnish salad with beets and avocado. Enjoy!
