Tropical Salad

by - August 18, 2017

I’ve been trying to branch out from my staple romaine lettuce. I’m wussy when it comes to greens. If it’s not romaine, green leaf, or red leaf lettuce, I’d prefer it in a green smoothie than a salad. But, I’ve been trying kale lately, and it’s growing on me. Kale is a tough green, so I recommend chopping it into smaller pieces than you would lighter lettuces. 

Tropical Salad 

1 mango 
2/3 cup coconut milk 
juice of 1/2 lime 
juice from 1 can sliced pineapple
1 Tablespoon chia seeds 

4-5 cups chopped kale (I used about four leaves), or other lettuce 
fruit from 1 can sliced pineapple 
1 kiwi 
1/2 a cucumber 
1/2 a bell pepper 
1 Tablespoon coconut 

For the salad: 
Wash and chop the kale, cutting off the stems. 

Open the can of pineapple. Add the fruit to the salad. Save the juice for the dressing. 

Chop the kiwi (and peel!), cucumber, and bell pepper. Add to the salad. Sprinkle on the coconut. 

For the dressing: 
Peel and cut up the mango. 
Add the mango, coconut milk, chia seeds, and pineapple juice to the blender. 
Slice the lime in half and squeeze out the juice into the blender. 

Enjoy a little bit of tropical paradise in the midst of your busy life :)
