Kale salad with strawberry stuffed salmon

Mondays are usually my least favorite. But today was pretty great overall. I only had one class this morning and I spent the rest of the day resting, catching up on emails, editing photos from sessions this weekend, and working on some school essays. After all of that, I decided to make a quick healthy meal because my body was craving something nutritious. Kale salad with Strawberry Stuffed Salmon was a great idea.

This meal took me 10 minutes to prep, that's it! And this was the best kale salad I've ever had. As usual, the ingredients were inspired by…whatever I found in my fridge. That always sparks creativity.

I made enough for dinner tonight, lunch & a snack tomorrow.

Salad Ingredients
Kale (half of a bunch, chopped)
Strawberries (4)
White mushrooms (handful, chopped)
Broccoli slaw (1 cup)
Asparagus (5, chopped)

  3. I had my first kale salad yesterday from Verde and am IN LOVE. But the kale seemed to be a lot 'thinner' than what we use in our juicer!? So the texture was less heavy. What kind do you buy? I'd love to make this - perfect summer supper!

    1. yum!! they are so good, and go well with just about every salad ingredient -- I bought mine from Kroger for like $1.50 for a bundle/bush and it was really thick and bright green -- it's lasted me for a week of meals!

  4. I would have to substitute the salmon for chicken... lol... (I don't eat fish)

    This does look very tasty Vett

    Thank you so much for your sweet comment :)

  5. Dang that looks good! I'm going to have to try this!
