Summer Kale, Avocado, Mango, and Chickpea Salad with Citrus Poppy Seed Vinaigrette

Recipe by  

"This is a delicious summer salad. Great as a dinner salad with some grilled chicken or fish, or as a side. This is my first experience with kale, and I'm hooked! Add nuts (walnuts, cashews, slivered almonds), sunflower seeds, or dried fruit (cranberries or cherries) for some added texture and deliciousness! I also like to add thinly sliced red bell peppers or Shepherd peppers; it is a salad, anything goes! The citrus vinaigrette is light and refreshing. Sometimes I want a sweeter vinaigrette, hence the addition of marmalade. Apricot would work well, too. A great summertime salad."

Directions

  1. Place kale in a large bowl and gently massage it with your hands until slightly tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Let kale rest to tenderize further, about 10 minutes.
  2. Stir avocado, mango, chickpeas, and cucumber into kale.
  3. Combine olive oil, vinegar, orange juice, sunflower seed kernels, mustard, poppy seeds, and marmalade in a jar with a tight-fitting lid; put on the lid and shake until dressing is well combined. Pour dressing over kale mixture and toss to coat.

We LOVE Kale and we LOVED this recipe. It has everything ingredient in it that we like, so this was a great and refreshing change from the usual salad for dinner. Lite and tangy and you can taste every ingredient. No need to tweek either. I made it as written. So good! Thanks weeble for a winner! I'll make this again and again!

I made this before it was kitchen approved. A delicious salad, summer and all year long. I love salads and like to try different ones. I did not add the poppy seeds or sunflower seeds(personal preference) Left all else as is~~~yummy. Thanks for sharing weeble...

A very good, gentle tasting salad. For me, I would prefer a bit more bitterness in the dressing, but for my family it was perfect.

This was a lovely combination of tastes and textures. The dressing was perfect - hint of sweetness but not overly sweet. Loved the combination of mangoes and avocados and the chick peas added a bit of substance or "meatiness" to the salad. I made it as per the recipe and it was delicious! If I were to tweak, I would add some dried cranberries for an additional color contrast - but definitely didn't need it for the flavor. I suspect you could also sub spinach for the kale and it would still be wonderful.

I didn't tweak this delicious salad at all! It made a lovely supper on a hot summer's evening. Thanks for sharing Weeble!
