Recipe for Spring Kale Salad w/ Sweet Mustard Dressing from Blissful Bites

Are you excited to crack open our April VegCookbook, Blissful Bites by Christy Morgan? If you haven’t picked up your copy yet, Christy was nice enough to send along a recipe for Spring Kale Salad w/ Sweet Mustard Dressing (below) to get us started.

She also wanted me to tell you that she would *love* it if we shared our photos, posts and comments on her Blissful Chef Facebook page.

I also wanted to mention, if you’re gluten free, that about 90% of the recipes are gluten-free, and are labeled accordingly.

Enjoy!

Spring Kale Salad w/ Sweet Mustard Dressing
2 bunches of kale, washed
1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1 fennel bulb, thinly sliced
2 avocados, cubed
2 tablespoons dulse, for garnish

  1. I cracked it open today and made the Tuna-less Tuna Salad:

    Both the S.O. and I really liked it. It’s quick, easy, very nutritious. I think I’ll make it frequently. I’m not a huge chickpea fan, as healthy as they may be, so this is a way to make them that is completely up my alley.

  2. Oooooh. I’ve been eying that one. It might have to be the next one I try!

  3. Did you use kelp granules? If so, where did you find them?

    • I had a little sample of “Kelp Seasoning” which included kelp and other seasoning. From Bragg’s I think.

      I also had some old Dulce (which is a kind of sea vegetable) in my cupboard, but it didn’t look too promising when I started trying to chop it up, so I skipped that.

      Whole Foods has a whole sea vegetable section…I think usually in the aisle that has “ethnic” foods.
