Kale & Smoked Salmon Pasta

Happy Thursday guys! Today’s recipe is Kale & Smoked Salmon Pasta – comforting, simple and perfect for a busy weekday dinner!

Kale & Smoked Salmon Pasta

Before my daughter started reception I thought I’d have a few spare hour a day. But it turned out I’m actually busier than I was when she was at nursery. I only got one and a half hour when the little one is napping. Then I have to wake her up and go collect her sister. So, yes, no time really but I try to work with whatever I have. ๐Ÿ™‚ This is why it’s essential to cook quick, easy but tasty food too, especially during the week when we’re rushing all the time. Not that the weekends are calmer. Both kids have activities on Saturday and Sunday, so yes, there’s always something. But at least during the weekend I can spend some more time in my tiny kitchen and test and create some yummy stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚

Kale & Smoked Salmon Pasta

This Kale & Smoked Salmon Pasta is one of these quick, easy and tasty recipes. I even used theย Roasted Kale & Feta Cheese Dipย so it was even easier than I thought. All I had to do was to boil the pasta. The kids are not very fond of kale, but they thought this was just pesto and I didn’t bother to tell them that it actually was my kale dip that they didn’t really fancy. ๐Ÿ™‚

I should probably title this Leftover Pasta as it appears I’m using leftovers again – my Kale Dip and some Smoked Salmon but as you now know that let’s focus on the recipe..:-)

Here’s how to make the Kale & Smoked Salmon Pasta

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

Smoked Salmon Kale Salad

This Smoked Salmon Kale Saladย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ ) 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! ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ย and massage o gently for a few minutes. ๐Ÿ™‚ Otherwise it could be quite tough and not very edible. ๐Ÿ™‚

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 inย 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! ๐Ÿ™‚
