Spicy Kale Salad

Hi guys!  Today I wanted to share a recipe- I feel like it has been a long time since I posted actual food.  I've been a little busy and haven't been focused on the vegan food I'm eating (is that taboo to say on this vegan blog?  I meant to say being vegan is the reason for my existence.  Sorry for that typo).  While I love it, I haven't been cooking or baking a lot, which is a shame.  This is my last real weekend of summer vacation- next week I start Driver's Ed and cross country practice, then will continue the sport as school begins the following week.  [Warning! Tangent!]  So blechchchchchch.  Also, the next season of Orange is the New Black won't come out until 2015.  What is that?  What if I die before then?  I just want to see Alex Vause raise her eyebrows all day everyday.


You know she used to be a model, right?
It's kinda obvious.


Anyway, I made this salad the other day and it was super tasty so I wanted to share it.  It's a great source of vitamins and an easy way to boost your vegetable intake.  This salad is filled with crisp, crunchy vegetables that are accented by a spicy salsa.  Enjoy!

Spicy Kale Salad:
Original Recipe
  • 5 leaves of kale, stems removed and chopped
  • 1/3 cup Poblano Corn Salsa:  1/2 chopped poblano, 1/4 cup organic corn, 1 Tbsp onion, 2 Tbsp cilantro, 1 lime
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped into circles
  • 1/2 green pepper* 
  • 1/2 cup kidney beans
  • 1-2 Tbsp Sesame Ginger Dressing (I used Whole Foods' No Oil Added)
Directions:  Mix the salsa and let it sit as you wash and prepare the vegetables.  Place kale and salsa in a bowl and massage it for 3-5 minutes.  Add your other veggies, then top with kidney beans and dressing.  Serves:  1.

*Note:  My papa grew the green peppers!

I love corn in salads.  I really love corn everything- corn pasta, corn flakes, corn puffs, corn tortillas, corn chips, popcorn, corn...

Speaking of embryos, here are the most recent pictures of Andi!

Hopefully you were too busy "awwwwweeeeeee"ing to think too much about that terrible transition.

What's your favorite vegetable for salads?

Have a wonderful week!
