Kale Salad w Green Goddess Salad Dressing – Thermomix

Published

My Thermomix Kale Salad packs a huge nutritional punch for all those people looking for an easy, healthy salad, PLUS its absolutely delicious. What makes this salad special is the inclusion of cranberries, pistachio, and green apple. The creamy, green Goddess avocado dressing balances all the flavours and keeps the salad low calorie, but full of healthy fats.

Some days you know you need a nutritional boost! When this happens I like to cram some nutritionally dense foods into my diet. I love this Kale salad because it’s so tasty, yet when I eat it I feel like I’m doing my body a big favour!

When I first made this salad for the family I expected there would be some objections. Firstly, my husband doesn’t believe fruit should be found in a salad. Secondly, the kids don’t like kale… and kale is quite strong in flavour for children.

To my surprised the kale salad was a resounding success, all family members loved it and wanted to have the leftovers for lunch!! Crazy! No one had even noticed the apple!! I think the key to the salad’s success is having sweet, savoury, crunchy and creamy elements.
