Fall Salad

After having a high raw diet for the past several months, I am slowly transitioning to more cooked foods. A really nice way to do that is to mix some sweet fall vegetables into my salads. I had leftover acorn squash so I went off of that. This salad was beautiful, nutritious, and delicious. I loved the combination of the tangy cranberries, with the sweet tangerine and earthy kale. The addition of the dip came as I was plating it and am very happy to have added the protein to this salad. It made it a complete meal.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups chopped lacinato kale
  • 1/4 of a cooked acorn squash cut into slices
  • 1 tangerine, sliced
  • 2 TBS dried cranberries
  • 2 TBS toasted pumkin seeds (raw seeds are great too, I just happened to have just made some that worked perfect for this salad)
  • a dollop of protein, anything you have on hand. Here I used white bean dip. But hummus could work great too.

Steps:

  • gently massage your kale with olive oil and salt to wilt it a little bit
  • put it on a plate and add all the other ingredients on top
  • drizzle a little bit of lemon juice and more oil if you like
  • enjoy!
