So in my last post I mentioned eating a Christmas salad as one of the self care tips for Christmas. So I thought I’d post my recipe today.
This recipe can be used for both a kale or a red cabbage salad.
300 grams of finely chopped kale (no middle stalks of the leafs as they are bitter)
300 grams of finely sliced and chopped red cabbage.
1 big apple, diced
1 dl of dried dates or figs (or mix of both)
½ dl of almonds, chopped
½ dl of walnuts, chopped
1 dl of olive oil
1 tablespoon of mustard
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
Mix all the ingredients for the salad. It taste the best if it get to stand for a few hours and then get mixed again (can easily be made the day before)
Mix it all in a shaker and shake until mixed.
Add dressing to taste.
The kale salad can be fancied up a bit by adding some feta and pomegranate seeds.
The red cabbage salad taste wonderful if you dice half a peeled orange and mix into it.
Both salads go well with meats and the fatty Christmas food in general.
I hope you’ll enjoy these.
