Since the Costco close to me in NJ is not quite ready to open, I decided to pack the salad in my suitcase and bring it back to NJ with me. It was then I realized how silly that was....so I made my own recipe that's pretty close to theirs.
SUPER KALE CABBAGE SALAD
- Cabbage Slaw, (I buy Rainbow Slaw with Broccoli, Cauliflower, Carrots and Red Cabbage in it)
- 1- bunch Kale (I used Lacinato--cut into fine ribbons)
- 3 oz. dried cranberries (or Cherries)
- 1/2 cup sliced almonds
- Poppy Seed Dressing. (I use Maple Grove Farms of Vermont, Fat Free, Poppyseed Dressing)
Rinse the slaw and the kale, and spin the water out with a salad spinner. Add the kale, cranberries, almonds, and poppyseed dressing. One tablespoon of dressing is 35 calories. Add between 6-8 tablespoons of dressing depending on your taste, stir well, and refrigerate.
This salad tastes better as it marinates. Make it in the morning, serve it in the evening or even better the next day! Stir well each time. It is packed full of super ingredients and very low in calories.
This salad would be great to bring to a Memorial Day picnic. Give it a try........it's tested and approved by the hubby too!
Wishing you a SUPER day and a wonderful weekend!
**Don't forget to share your thoughts after you make it. It will be interesting to see if you love it as much as I do.
