Recipe for Everyday Superfood Salad**
** pile on the sauerkraut
Salad Ingredients: 1 bunch of kale, leaves chopped kinda small, 1 broccoli branch/segment, florets finely chopped, juice of 1 lime, salt and pepper (I used Himalayan pink salt–any old salt is fine), 1 small beet (red or golden or striped) thinly sliced, 1 carrot thinly sliced, 1 ripe avocado peeled + sliced, 1-2 sprigs of basil, chopped handful of blueberries
Blueberry Ginger Dressing Ingredients: heaped 1/4 cup blueberries, 1/2 inch piece of ginger peeled + chopped, 2 tbsp raw apple cider vinegar, 1 tbsp maple syrup, big splash of water, salt + pepper, 1/4 cup oil (grapeseed or extra virgin olive oil)
Omega Seed Sprinkle Ingredients: handful sunflower seeds, handful pumpkin seeds, 1-2 tbsp flax seeds, 1-2 tbsp chia seeds, 1-2 tbsp hemp seeds, handful of puffed quinoa (or puffed millet, brown rice, etc), pinch of ground coriander, pinch of salt
In a large bowl, massage the kale and chopped broccoli with the lime juice, salt and pepper. Keep massaging until the leaves seem a bit more tender. Taste a leaf for seasoning, adjust and set aside. Chop and prep all of the other salad ingredients and set aside.
Make the dressing by combining all of the ingredients in a blender and blend on high until you have a creamy and unified mixture. Check for seasoning and sweetness, adjust and set aside.
In a medium sauté pan, combine all of the omega seed sprinkle ingredients over medium heat. Stir them until they smell toasty and the coriander is a bit more prominent. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
Arrange the massaged kale and broccoli on your serving plate. Top the greens with the beets, carrots, avocado, chopped basil, and blueberries. Season the whole dish with salt and pepper again. Stir up the dressing (it should have thickened a bit) and drizzle it all over the top and garnish the salad with the omega seed sprinkle. Serve it up!
