Kale. Kale is good for you. That is all.
I mean I could leave it at that and call it a day but you know…I guess I’ll write a bit more.
This is a basic salad and quick. This is probably the type of salad every non-vegan assumes all vegan/plant-based individuals eat. This is the epitome of basic.
But just because it’s basic don’t mean it’s not good. I was surprised when I tried it. One thing about salads is that for me, I’ve always gotten used to the idea that all salads require some sort of salad dressing.
But in general, salad dressing usually means that the meal instantly becomes less healthier than it would have been because of all the added calories, sugar, fat, etc.
Obviously I wanted to avoid that, plus I don’t eat these type of salads often so I had to improvise because I don’t have salad dressings on hand in my fridge. But what I did have was a lemon. So being the creative genius I am,
I cut a lemon in half, picked out the seeds, and spritzed (cuz we bougie) some lemon juice on the salad and that was it.
That’s all you need. It sounds simple but it’s refreshing at the same time. This is definitely an easy recipe you can have as a side, or for a light lunch. Try it out.
- 1-2 medium apples diced
- Half a cucumber
- 1 tomato or a few grape tomatoes
- 1 lemon
- Wash and dry the kale. Then roughly chop.
- Cut the apple(s) in half and then dice them into cubes.
- If you’re using grape tomatoes you can just cut them in half or quarters, otherwise dice your tomato.
- Cut the cucumber in half and then into halves or quarters (personal preference on this).
- Combine all ingredients into salad bowl.
- Cut the lemon in half and add as much lemon juice as desired.
- Eat that shxt!
