“KALE IS SUPERFOOD” — haven’t we heard that a lot :)) well I think it taste nice…. whether cooked or raw. My husband on the other hand, does not think the same 😦 so I try and make Kale recipes when he is not home or eats something else 😉 So I found this Salad recipe on Pinterest. It is from Wishful Chef –there are some yum looking recipes there!
I cut down the recipe to make 1-2 servings and changed up 2 ingredients.
Kale Chickpea Salad
Makes 1-2 serving.
1/2 can Chickpeas/Garbanzo Beans, rinsed (I buy low sodium)
1-2 leaves of Kale, finely chopped
1-2 tbsp finely chopped cilantro
1/2 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1-2 tsp Lemon Balsamic White
Salt and Pepper to taste
Parmesan cheese, grated.
In a bowl, mix the chickpea, kale, cilantro, garlic, olive oil and lemon balsamic. Add salt, pepper and cheese to taste. Toss it together, cover and refrigerate for 15-30 mins at least. Enjoy!
I just let it sit for 15 minutes on the counter and the flavors marinated well. However I can see letting it sit longer will make it even more delicious. Overall… yum recipe… a good Lunch Box Salad and very quick and easy!!! I did substitute the lemon juice with Lemon Balsamic …. with my Balsamic craze lately 😉 and I am not a parsley fan, but love cilantro so I added that. So I am not sure if these 2 changes will bring about much flavor changes however I was happy with it. For the original recipe Click HERE
This is all for today, hopefully you will try and enjoy this quick, easy and yum salad!!
Until next time,
