Recipe

I have been eating this salad on repeat lately for lunches and am totally in love. Not only does it leave me completely satisfied, it is packed with nutrients and healthy fats plus it has plenty of protein and fiber for energy to keep you going all afternoon. Personally this is a bit rare for me since normally when I have salad for lunch I am hungry just a few hours later and searching for snacks.

Since it takes a little bit of prep work, I usually prepare the salmon, sweet potatoes, and kale on the weekend so that almost everything is ready to go. Then I can just toss in my other chopped veggies and lunch is ready. The whole salad can be prepped ahead of time, but the avocado and apple will likely turn slightly brown. You can also use chicken, tofu, or chickpeas instead of the salmon depending on your dietary needs.

  1. Preheat the broiler on high. Squeeze half the lemon juice over the salmon and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook the salmon under the broiler for 6-8 minutes or until flaky and cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile combine the remaining lemon juice, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, and mustard. Massage into the kale for 1-2 minutes until kale begins to soften.
  3. Pierce the sweet potato a few times with a fork or knife. Microwave for 4-5 minutes until tender. You can also bake it in the oven. Carefully chop.
  4. Toss everything together. Season with salt and pepper.
