Wakame and Kale salad with Avo and Orange:
For this salad we use Wakame seawead, but if you can’t find Wakame at your supermarket you can use nori sheets as a substitute (Used to make sushi).Wakame, like Kale, is a green power house – loaded with good stuff including magnesium, iodine, calcium, folate, iron and vitamins A, C, E and K, plus vitamin D. Not to mention, riboflavin (vitamin B12), which assists in converting carbohydrates, fats and proteins into energy. Riboflavin promotes red blood cell production, functions as an antioxidant and works in the body with other vitamins such as niacin, folate, and vitamin B6.
What you’ll need for the salad:
2 cups red cabbage, finely sliced
2 cups of kale, finely sliced (Remember to remove the stalks)
1 avocado cubed
Wakame fronds (you could use 1 cup of cut-up nori sheets)
½ cup of Flaxseeds, sesame seeds and chia seeds
1 teaspoon Himalayan rock salt
What you’ll need for the dressing:
1 juiced Orange
The Zest from one orange
½ cup of avocado oil
1 table spoon of honey
1 tea spoon of grated ginger
Directions: Place the finely sliced cabbage and kale into a bowl. Using your hands, mix the cabbage and kale together with the salt for a minute, until they soften as though they were slightly cooked. Add in the remaining salad ingredients and place into your serving bowl.
For the dressing, add all the ingredients into a jar and shake for a minute, when you’re ready to serve the salad pour the dressing over and enjoy!
