Love Houston Restaurant’s Kale Salad? Here’s my version of their deliciously healthy salad. It’s packed full of kale, cabbage & cilantro then topped with a slightly tangy peanut vinaigrette.
On a recent trip to Houstons, one of our favorite restaurants, I was served a Kale Salad as a side to my dinner. It was so delicious, with its tangy peanut sauce and crispy vegetables, that I had to try to duplicate it at home. I am pleased to say that the result was almost identical to the restaurant version.
Kale is in the spotlight this year and makes a very healthy addition to anyone’s diet. Kale is a member of the same family as cabbage, collard greens, broccoli and Brussels sprouts. It has become king of the vegetables for its wonderful anti-cancer properties, its help in the reduction of cholesterol and the risk of heart disease. It is high in calcium, Vitamins A & C and, in just one cup, has a mind-blowing 684% of Vitamin K! It is great raw, cooked and is used often in juicing.
This salad goes great with seafood as well as chicken. I served mine with a nicely seared ahi tuna which pairs well with the slightly tangy salad. Add a glass of of Pinot Noir to complete the meal. Enjoy!
