Smoked Salmon Kale Salad

Happy Thursday all! The recipe of the day is Smoked Salmon Kale Salad – super rich, with lots of yummy ingredients this salad will full you up! It’s more like a main dish really! πŸ™‚

Smoked Salmon Kale Salad

This Smoked Salmon Kale SaladΒ is packed with so many ingredients – apples, carrots, sun-dried tomatoes, avocado and even walnuts! So lots of vitamins and nutrients to fuel your body.

You might think there’s way too much stuff on this salad (well, you might be right πŸ™‚ ) but it really tastes lovely. Salads like these are definitely a favourite of mine. You get to have various ingredients in one meal – fruit, veg, nuts and fish! πŸ™‚ And it’s quite healthy too. I didn’t expect kale and smoked salmon to go well but I was wrong. It turned out to be a really delicious combination. Don’t forget to massage the kale though – just add a dash of olive oil Β and massage o gently for a few minutes. πŸ™‚ Otherwise it could be quite tough and not very edible. πŸ™‚

Smoked Salmon Kale Salad

For the dressing I used tahini, lemon juice, olive oil and salt. I love the lemon tahini dressing but I’m aware it’s not everyone’s favourite so if you’d rather prefer, you can skip the tahini. It just gives more flavour and nuttiness to the salad but on the other side, skipping the tahini makes the salad tastes lighter.

Here’s what you need to make the Smoked Salmon Kale Salad

If you’d rather make a bigger portion and keep it in the fridge for a few days make sure to live the salad dry. Don’t add the dressing as it’ll go soggy and not so appetizing. You can easily divide it inΒ a few small containers and keep the dressing in a small pot/container. Thus you’ll have a tasty packed lunch. Don’t recommend keeping it more than two days though. Fresh is best! πŸ™‚

Sweet Potato Noodles with Kale & Pork

Happy Wednesday guys! The recipe of the day is here – Sweet Potato Noodles with Kale & Pork –Β absolutely lovely and comforting meal, ready in just a few minutes!

Sweet Potato Noodles with Kale & Pork

And on top of that my kids loved it, even the kale, yes! Well, probably because it was kind of mixed with the sweet potatoes, but they really liked this recipe.

This is a really simple dish, all you need is sweet potatoes, kale and pork.

I also added some pine nuts, just for a crunch, and it tasted even better.

The pork I used was a leftover from a bbq the previous day so it’s up to you what to use. It’s a great way to use your leftover food, well pork in this case! And to make things more healthier I stirred in some kale, which by the way I love, unfortunately can’t say the same for the rest of my family. πŸ™‚ Even though I do feed them with it and don’t give up. They like it sometimes but other times are not that keen. πŸ™‚

Tip: It’s important not to overcook the sweet potato, otherwise they’ll get mushy and won’t be really noodles anymore (done that, not that they’re not tasty, it’s just a different meal) πŸ™‚
