Pumpkin and Kale Salad

As you’ll know about me I do love a good food prep. This salad makes the perfect accompaniment to your protein of choice for a week’s worth of lunches. This will makes 5 servings, you will need:

  • 250g spinach
  • 7 stalks of curly kale
  • 1tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
  • 2 handfuls walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 200g roasted pumpkin, diced
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 125g feta cheese
  • 75g sundried tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 cup buckwheat
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds, black or white
  • salt and pepper to season

Firstly cook you buckwheat according to packet instruction and leave to cool.

Then it really is as easy de-veining your kale and roughly chopping it and then mixing it with all the other ingredients in a bowl and voila! There you have it; 5 lunches or one big salad centrepiece.

I would recommend serving it with a simple olive oil and lemon juice dressing and if you are having it for lunches make sure you only dress it when you are ready to serve – no one likes soggy kale!
