Autumn Kale Salad

11 Nov

I’ve been making a version of this salad a lot over the past few weeks because of the abundance of kale at the farmers’ market and thus in my fridge. It’s super quick to make and because kale is so hearty, it lasts for up to 4 days. Experiment with different greens, dried fruits and ingredients in general! I like to make a large mason jar of vinaigrette and have it in the fridge to use at any time.

Autumn Kale Salad

2 cups raw kale, finely chopped
2 small heritage carrots, finely sliced
1/2 small red pepper, finely sliced
1/2 a large parsnip, shredded
1/4 white or red onion, finely sliced
2 dried nectarine halves, finely slice (or any other dried fruit)

Dressing:
1/4 olive oil
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp dried herbs (basil, thyme, oregano, rosemary)
1/4 tsp mustard powder
1 tsp onion granules
1 tsp garlic granules
1 tsp sugar

Toss everything in a bowl with dressing and let sit for about 2 hours. Kale will start to soften. Portion out individually and store for up to 4 days.

Enjoy!

My Go-To Spice Mix

27 Jul

Sometimes I get stuck about what to make for dinner, especially when I’ve waited until I’m starving or I don’t have a lot of time to make and eat something. It’s during these times that this spice mix (that I always have on-hand in the cupboard) comes in totally handy. It quickly turns chicken breasts, pork chops and even firm tofu slices into the star of a meal when paired with rice, roasted veggies or on top of a salad.

Go-To Spice Mix (modified from Emeril’s Essence)
4 tablespoons salt
4 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoon lemon pepper
2 tablespoon onion powder
2 tablespoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoon dried oregano, and/or thyme, and/or rosemary, and/or marjoram

Combine all ingredients in an airtight container. Store for up to 6 months.

To use: Drizzle your protein of choice in a little olive oil, then rub in a generous amount of the spice mix. Grill on both sides and viola – perfectly seasoned dinner! This stuff also works well on any type of roasted vegetable.
