Superfood Salad

If you have about an hour to make a salad...this is a jackpot bowl of greens! I've had a few days off of work this week so I've had some fun in the kitchen. A cutting board, a knife, and some veggies...instant therapy!

Here is what you will need: 

Salad ingredients: 
- 1 bunch kale, leaves chopped small
- 1 broccoli head chopped small 
- Juice of 1 lime
- 1 small beet 
- 1 carrot thinly sliced
- 1 ripe avocado peeled and sliced
- 3-4 sprigs fresh basil sliced thin
- handful of blueberries 

Blueberry ginger dressing ingredients: 
- 1/4 c. blueberries
- 1/2 in. piece of fresh ginger peeled and chopped
- 2 Tbs. raw apple cider vinegar
- 1 Tbs. maple syrup 
- big splash of water
- salt & pepper
- 1/4 c. grapeseed oil 

Omega seed sprinkle ingredients: 
- handful sunflower seeds
- handful pumpkin seeds
- 2 Tbs. flax seed
- 2 Tbs. chia seed
- 1-2 Tbs. hemp seed 
- handful of puffed quinoa 
- pinch of coriander 

1) In a large bowl, massage the kale and chopped broccoli with lime juice massaging until the kale leaves are tender. Chop and prep all the salad ingredients and set aside. 

2) Make the dressed by combining all the ingredients in a food processor until smooth. 

3) In a medium saute pan, combine all of the omega seed sprinkle ingredients over medium heat. Sprinkle a little coriander and toast the seeds. Remove from heat. 

4) Arrange the massaged kale and broccoli on your serving plate. Top with vegetables, dressing, and omega sprinkle. Enjoy!
