Raw Kale Salads

Chickpea and Kale Sandwich Spread or Salad

Chickpea and kale sandwich spread

Chickpeas and kale are a tasty team, and this combination makes a great spread for bread, a filling for pita bread or a wrap (along with some tender lettuce and sliced tomatoes), or layered scoop of it on a sturdy flatbread and served open-faced. For a nice warm weather meal, this is great served with any sort of potato salad and a simple fruit medley. This makes about 2 to 2 1/2 cups. Recipe from Plant Power: Transform Your Kitchen, Plate, and Life with More Than 150 Fresh and Flavorful Vegan Recipes by Nava Atlas. ©2014, published by HarperOne, reprinted by permission.

This variation of Raw Sweet Potato and Cabbage Salad with Coconut-Lime Dressing was inspired by Ricki Heller. She took my aforementioned recipe and varied it by using raw kale. The combination of raw sweet potato and raw kale (two veggies more commonly eaten cooked) is amazing. A small amount of red cabbage is added for color and crunch, and the coconut oil and lime dressing ties it all together. Continue Reading…
