Random Things In My Kitchen Slaw

Random Things In My Kitchen Slaw for lunch.
I'm not much of a cook & I'm certainly never going to be a food blogger--I leave that up to the likes of Well Fed Flat Broke's Emily Wight or Rebecca Coleman of Cooking by Laptop--but salads I can do.

I like chopping veggies plus since there's no cooking required I won't forget & leave a pot on the stove. I feel like there's more room for creativity with a salad too, since I don't have to worry about anything rising or thickening or caramelizing. I can just toss things from my fridge & cabinets into a bowl & voila! Lunch. 

Since reading "Eat to Live", I've really gotten into eating just a huge salad for lunch. It totally fills me up & I don't get hungry for hours afterward. I can consume a mass quantity of food without eating more than a few hundred calories. Plus eating a massive pile of kale or other greens is a great way to get important nutrients & fibre.

Here's my latest giant salad creation that I thought I'd share with you, since it turned out pretty well. I've named it Random Things In My Kitchen Slaw:

3-4 leaves kale, finely chopped
1 large carrot, grated
1/4 red cabbage, sliced into thin strips
1 apple
1/2 an avocado
A handful of cashews
A few dashes of apple cider vinegar
freshly ground pepper to taste
Hot sauce to taste (I used 3-4 good squirts of Sriracha)

Toss the first three ingredients in a large salad bowl. Throw the rest into your blender or food processor & whizz it up until it's smooth. Pour the dressing onto the salad & toss to coat.

This recipe made around 4 side salad sized portions. You could add some seeds or nuts on top to make it a little richer--sunflower, pumpkin, hemp, or even chia would be good.
