I have to say, this salad really surprised me because I just didn’t expect kale to taste so good. Of course, I’ve always been a fan of the healthy vegetable, but not to the point of being overly freaked out. That has definitely changed with this recipe and I’m already almost addicted to it. That’s why I’m already looking forward to Friday, when I finally get to go to my favorite vegetable farmer again and put a nice bunch of fresh kale in my basket.

Essentially, there are three simple steps to the salad. First, the sweet potato, along with the chickpeas, olive oil and spices are mixed and roasted in the oven. The kale is also kneaded with a little olive oil and lemon juice until soft. The last step is to mix the dressing of cashews, vegetable milk, mustard, garlic, yeast flakes, lemon juice and salt.

TIP: If you have small powerful blender, then I recommend my guide on how to properly soak cashews.

Kale salad, sounds better than kale salad, right?

At the end everything is mixed together, guaranteed with chili flakes and parmesan and ready is this marvel of flavor. I like to eat it as a main dish or as a smaller portion with another main course. Either way, this recipe is worth trying. I promise you won’t be disappointed. The nutritional content is equally gigantic, thanks to the high-quality protein and complex carbohydrates from the sweet potato and chickpeas. Together with the other ingredients, an all-around healthy dish.

TIP: If you want to give the recipe a Christmas, winter touch, then I recommend adding Dried Cranberries or Raisins. I can also imagine a touch of cinnamon very well.
