If you are looking for salad recipes to add to your winter menu, why not give this kale and beet salad a try! Packed with winter vegetables and fruit, this easy salad can be enjoyed with or without homemade walnut dressing.
Tear the kale leaves into small pieces and place them in a serving bowl. Massage them with your fingers for about 2-3 minutes. This will make them softer.
Cut the beets into bite-size pieces, peel the oranges and cut them into segments. Peel the carrots and with the same peeler, peel them into long strips. Thinly slice the celery.
Add all these ingredients into the serving bowl and mix well. Now add a generous drizzle of olive oil, a pinch of salt and pepper and mix again. Throw in walnuts and seeds and give it one last mix (or don’t).
Serve with walnut dressing or dressing of your choice.
For the walnut dressing (optional):
Blend the walnuts in a food processor until meal-like texture. Add water, olive oil and honey and blend everything well. Add freshly squeezed lemon juice, mix and taste. Add more water, if too thick. You should get about ½ cup of dressing. For the salad, you will need about a ¼ - ⅓ cup.
Beets - you can use more or less.
I got ½ cup of sliced celery. You can use less or omit this completely if you don’t like celery.
Seeds - I used mixed seeds - chia, sunflower, pumpkin seeds but you can use any kind of seeds you like.
Dressing - if you have a recipe for dressing that you like, go ahead and use it. Or use your favorite shop-bought dressing. You can also omit it completely and dress the salad with olive oil only and season with salt and pepper.
