Sprouted Lentil Vegan Kale Ceasar Salad

Sprouted Lentil Vegan Kale Ceasar Salad

Oh my goodness, when I tell you this salad is a masterpiece, I’m SERIOUS!

Whoever said vegans can’t do Caesar salad salad ain’t never met ain’t never met this bowl of deliciousness!!!

The key to a super creamy dressing & getting it to adhere well to the kale is adding Dijon & nutritional yeast & seasoning the salad directly in the same bowl then getting your hands in there to massage the kale in the dressing! A little messy but so KEY!

This makes for the perfect fresh, crispy, light but satisfying & super nutritious lunch & what’s wonderful is that you can prep it ahead of time too!

PRO TIP: Once the salad is seasoned, use the leftover lemon from the dressing & throw it into a big glass of water so you can sip on antioxidants & vitamin C throughout the day

YOU NEED:

FOR THE SALAD:

  • 2 massive cups chopped kale
  • 5-6 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small cucumber
  • 1/4 cup organic sprouted lentils
  • 1/4 cup daikon radish
  • 2-3 strawberries

FOR THE DRESSING:

  • 3 tbsp. raw organic apple cider vinegar
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • Sea salt & black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard (I use the raw organic one by Maison Orphee)

HOW?:

  • Add all the veggie ingredients to a big bowl then throw on the dressing ingredients.
  • Massage the dressing into the kale until creamy & combined. I like to let the salad sit for about 5 minutes to really let the kale absorb all the deliciousness!
  • Top with more nutritional yeast & enjoy!!
