If you are looking for a fresh idea for a brown bag lunch this is it! The flavor combination of spicy crystallized ginger, sweet dried cranberries, nutty pumpkin seeds, and lemon is bliss- PLUS, this salad packs really well and will minimize that take-out temptation. Purchasing pre-chopped kale will eliminate your prep time.
1 large handful of kale, chopped
1 tablespoon dried cranberries
1" of dried crystallized ginger, chopped
1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds (also known as pepitas and PACKED with protein)
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Combine kale, olive oil, and lemon juice into a bowl and toss until kale leaves are coated. The kale will tenderize with this. Top with all the goods- cranberries, ginger, pumpkin seeds, and season to taste with salt and pepper. So easy!
