Last weekend we had a family dinner at my in-laws house. As always, the salad making was left to me. (I would have it no other way.) I whipped up something simple but oh so good. It reminded me of a salad you would eat on a warm day in summer… or January, for us SoCal residents.
Now, as a general rule, both my brother and father-in law are not salad eaters. Although, they always politely take a small serving and follow the one-bite rule. To all of our surprise, they both liked this salad! I am still beaming with pride.
Give it a shot and see if you can win any of your salad haters over with this sweet mix.
The Salad for Haters
- Base: tuscan kale (finely chopped)
- Accessories: sliced strawberries and sliced almonds (dry roasted)
- Dressing: olive oil, white balsamic vinegar, a drizzle of honey, and salt & pepper to taste. To reduce the clean up, I add the dressing ingredients separately to the chopped kale. I toss it all together so that the kale is all covered in the dressing.
Good strawberries are hard to come by in the cold winter months. We happened to have some super ripe ones from the local patch. Any fresh fruit would work as an alternative (the sweeter the better) – apple, pear, orange, etc.
I had to fight this one for the fork. I guess it’s a salad for haters and toddlers!
