Kale Salad With Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette (For Healthy Skin)
Perfect for a light lunch or side salad, this healthy recipe for total health and vibrant skin features kale, avocado, quinoa, pomegranate seeds, pecans, goat cheese, and a homemade Meyer lemon vinaigrette.
Leafy greens, especially kale, are high in antioxidants and vitamin K—both of which help the skin look young (antioxidants because they help slow down the process of aging, and vitamin K because it protects the skin’s elasticity).
Pomegranate seeds boast super high levels of polyphenols (an antioxidant also found in cranberries).
𝗜𝗡𝗚𝗥𝗘𝗗𝗜𝗘𝗡𝗧𝗦 (𝟰 𝗦𝗲𝗿𝘃𝗶𝗻𝗴𝘀)
4 cups chopped kale
1 avocado, diced
1/2 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 cup pomegranate arils
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
𝗙𝗢𝗥 𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗠𝗘𝗬𝗘𝗥 𝗟𝗘𝗠𝗢𝗡 𝗩𝗜𝗡𝗔𝗜𝗚𝗥𝗘𝗧𝗧𝗘
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed Meyer lemon juice*
Zest of 1 Meyer lemon*
1 tablespoon sugar
*𝗠𝗲𝘆𝗲𝗿 𝗹𝗲𝗺𝗼𝗻- They're sweeter and less astringent than run-of-the-mill Eurekas, with a thin, edible skin and a fragrance as floral as a bouquet of hyacinth.
If you can’t find them at your market, a decent swap is to replace the juice (or zest) of 1 Meyer lemon, simply swap in the juice (...or zest) of 1/2 a tangerine and 1/2 a regular lemon.
1. To make the vinaigrette, whisk together olive oil, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, lemon zest and sugar in a small bowl; set aside.
2. To assemble the salad, place kale in a large bowl; top with avocado, quinoa, pomegranate arils, pecans and goat cheese. Pour the dressing on top of the salad and gently toss to combine.
3. Serve immediately.
