I made this salad from scratch last week when I wanted to add a superfood, super nutrient-dense power side to my boring last-meal-of-the-day protein shake… I was so excited about it that I documented it via iphone photos (I mean, what trainer/nutritionist worth her salt doesn’t photograph her food? Just sayin’.) so that when it was finished and realized it was incredibly delicious (and BOY was it ever) I could share it with you all (with a teaser on Instagram first, of course). So without further ado, here’s the very easy, very fast recipe for my ‘Warm Italian Kale Salad’…Enjoy!
- 1/2 bag of organic kale (I use Trader Joes)
- 1 T coconut oil
- 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
- 1/2 medium sweet or yellow onion, chopped
- 6-8 asparagus spears, chopped
- 1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes
- 1/4 cup parmesan or parmesan & romano cheese (optional)
- Onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper and sea salt to taste
- Heat large skillet over medium heat.
- Chop onions and asparagus (I used previously steamed asparagus), slice mushrooms.
- Melt coconut oil and coat pan.
- Add onions, mushrooms and asparagus to pan, toss to coat with coconut oil, and cover to let steam and simmer.
- When onions are steamed soft, add kale, tomatos and parmesan, and sprinkle seasoning over the top. Toss with spatula to mix.
- Cover and steam until Kale is wilted….ENJOY! :)
Variations and Options
To make it more of a Greek flavor, sub fat-free feta cheese for the parmesan and toss in 1/2c sliced black olives.
“ALL HAIL THE ALMIGHTY KALE”
Interesting and fascinating kale fact: Kale is also a source of indole-3-carbinol, a chemical which boosts DNA repair in cells and appears to block the growth of cancer cells.*
