Kale and Strawberry Salad

kale strawberry salad
By: Isabel Smith, MS, RD, CDN

I love simple and healthy salads. This one combines fresh and raw ingredients with roasted parsnips (so sweet and tasty!) for an easy-to-assemble, nutrient-packed lunch or snack. The kale is loaded with healthy B-vitamins and iron as well as fiber and liver-healthy compounds. Strawberries are a source of anti-inflammatory anthocyanin and pumpkin seeds are a source of thyroid-healthy selenium and zinc.

The dressing on the salad is a light olive oil and lemon vinaigrette but can be altered as well to suit other tastes. Try adding different herbs and spices to change the flavor profile of the dressing. Enjoy this tasty and delicious salad on its own, or use it as a base and add a lean protein, such as chicken or fish.
