Kale & Lemon Salad

April 20, 2017

This Kale & Lemon Salad makes a perfect accompaniment to any meal. Adding citrus to a kale salad helps to increase bioavailability and absorption of iron, making it a nutrient rich dish.

Key Nutrients

Kale – A really good source of minerals iron and calcium, kale is also an excellent source of vitamins A, C and K. Paired with citrus helps to increase the bioavailability and absorption of iron.

Tomatoes – Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, a phytochemical that gives tomatoes their distinct red colour. Lycopene really helps to increase antioxidant activity within the body.

Avocado – It adds a real creaminess to this recipe and avocados are a healthy source of monounsaturated fats and vitamin E. They are also a good source of potassium and fibre.

Tips

Turn this into a main meal by increasing the portion size and adding a protein of your choice.

I use a standard cup measure. If you don’t have one you can use a mug and substitute the amount for ¾ of a standard mug.
