In order to make an incredible SUPERFOOD Salad, you first need to bunch of kale. Not only is kale one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet, it also is high in protein, fiber, and Folate. I like to call it 'brain food.'
Although I try to eat kale at least once a week, what I choose to add to it makes or breaks the salad. For instance, I added red quinoa, tomatoes, red peppers, jalapeños, avocado, red onion, pinto beans and grilled corn for southwestern flavors.
Another benefit of this salad is the cumin citrus dressing. Not only is it low in fat, it is smokey and tangy all at the same time. Kale, when dressed beforehand, is easier to digest and enjoy.
So, this southwestern salad is better if made in advance. Subsequently, the only ingredients that need to be added before serving is the avocado. Other than that, this salad is easy to make and even better to eat.
