I love this salad. I have it almost every day. Although, it’s a favorite of mine it has everything in it that my guy doesn't like in a salad.... kale, citrus and nuts….more for me! In the picture, I did add some cucumbers and peppers just to pretty it up. When I make it I only have it with chopped kale or mixed greens, maple and lime vinaigrette and lots of roasted almond slices. The vinaigrette recipe came from the website 86 lemons. I renamed it, changed the ingredient amounts and I used maple syrup instead of agave. I did make the recipe California chipotle chop that goes with this dressing and it was good.
maple and lime vinaigrette (recipe below)
You can roast the almonds in the oven but I prefer pan fry. Put them in a frying pan on low to medium. Stir often, making sure they don’t burn.
3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
3 Tbsp maple syrup
