This zingy Christmas Kale Salad with Citrus Dressing is so versatile! Serve it as a side dish, or add a protein to make it a meal.Jump to Recipe
I have gone back and forth about the title of this recipe, but ultimately decided that you’ve probably seen enough “citrus kale salads.” So yes, it’s Christmas Kale Salad…BUT… you can eat it in December, or July! It is named for its colors, not the time of year that you eat it.
If you’ve been following me for any amount of time, you know that there is a vegetable that I really, really dislike. (Gasp!) Yes, that’s right. I hate beets. Always have. But since I aim to feel my best, I am doing all I can to eat a wide variety to veggies. This recipe and my Beet Carrot Salad are my attempts to find ways to eat vegetables that I don’t really like. Maybe one day, I will learn to like them.
I have a big batch of this salad in my fridge right now on hand for lunches. Today, I added shredded chicken from my Falling-Off-The-Bone Crockpot Chicken, which I always keep on hand, but you can add whatever protein you like! I find that I do a much better job of keeping to my AIP diet if there is something that I can grab out of the fridge on the fly.
One last tip…
Taste your dressing. If your oranges are lovely and sweet, you won’t need to make any adjustments. If your oranges are a bit anemic, and thus a bit tart, feel free to add some honey.
Happy healing, everyone! ENJOY!
