Time for some salad! A superfood salad with ALL the fixins, of course!

Since I posted about my 6 staple salad dressing recipes (all of which happen to be vegan), I've been wanting to create some new recipes for you to use those dressings. By now I'm sure you know the thousands of way I use tahini in my everyday life, and that spicy lemon olive oil is on an every other day rotation (at least) in our house. But the almond butter? That one is a bit more tricky.

So here's what we're gonna do:

We're gonna make an epic kale salad and load it up. Crunchy purple cabbage, sweet red bell peppers, tender roasted sweet potatoes, fiber-rich chickpeas, and an extra bite from green onions. Topped with some salty peanuts and all tossed with our spicy (and creamy) Thai almond butter sauce.

You could say it's salad perfection and I wouldn't argue!

I've found one of the keys to making a loaded kale salad is to actually let the salad sit for a bit. Even overnight if you can.

Since kale is a somewhat tough veggie, and it takes a bit to break down the cell walls, letting your salad marinate will make it easier to eat, easier to digest and more flavorful. Winning all around, I'd say!

I've also realized something about myself through all these salad trials: I L-O-V-E a salad that is piled high with goodies. The more add-ins the better!

Sweet potatoes are a must, especially when they're soft, roasted and golden brown.

Something crunchy…definitely.
Something sweet…always.
Plant-based protein…necessary.
And something creamy…forever ♡

This salad has it all and I know you're going to love it!

High in fiber, high in protein, filled with healthy fats and packed with superfoods. It's filling, hearty, comforting, cozy and makes you feel amazing!
