In the wake of all this pea-guacamole madness (which i will absolutely be making soon, by the way), I was inspired to incorporate peas into my lunch!
This salad is light, refreshing, and packed with crazy-good-for-you ingredients. Massaging the kale with the citrus dressing also gives this meal the perfect summery taste. I think I found my new go-to meal this season!
Pea & Artichoke Kale Salad (With Lemon-Mustard Dressing)
1 cup torn kale
1/4 cup cooked quinoa
5-10 cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup peas (fresh or frozen)
1/3 avocado, sliced
2-3 artichoke hearts
2 tbsp. chopped red onion
1/4 cup chickpeas
For the Dressing:
1/2 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 tbsp. horseradish mustard (or your favorite!)
1. In a bowl, whisk the ingredients for the dressing together. Add the kale and toss until well-coated. Let sit for 15 minutes (a good time to chop the veggies!).
2. Once the kale is done marinating, add the rest of the ingredients and toss. Add sea salt to taste, if desired. Dig in!
Enjoy your 4th of July weekends, y’all!!! 🙂
