Southwestern Kale Power Salad with Sweet Potato, Quinoa & Avocado Sauce

When I first tried this salad, I just about died. With my fork in my hand and a mouthful of food. It’s so good, so fulfulling and it makes you feel like you’re doing something good for your body. The avocado cream was worth the effort itself, and it’s definitely something I’ll be making again to accompany other dishes.


Speaking of effort, anyone who has been to our house knows how tiny our kitchen is. Anyone who’s seen me at work in said tiny kitchen knows that I’m the type to use every single dish we own and I do not clean as I cook. Basically, I’m a nightmare in a floral apron. Because this salad has so many different components, my kitchen looked like a bomb had gone off by the time I’d finished making it. But again, it’s so damn tasty that it was well worth it. If you’re going to give it a go yourself I implore you to make it exactly as the recipe calls, and don’t skip any of the components. You’ll thank me for it.

The recipe calls for massaging the kale. Which sounds a bit pervy to me, but after reading the recipe reviews I knew it had to be done. so here goes..


And this avocado cream! I could put it on cardboard and happily eat it for days. Seriously.


Head over to cookieandkate for the recipe. Run, don’t walk. Her website very sternly advised against copying her recipe and after watching a few episodes of Orange is the New Black, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t last an hour in prison for plagiarism. Besides, I look terrible in orange.

Bon Appetit!
