Kale, Fruit, and Nut Power Salad

This powerhouse salad is like a party in a bowl - with all the colors, textures, and tastes, each bite is different and all of them are delicious! It's also full of healthy proteins like cheese, sunflower seeds, and edamame. Broccoli, spinach, and kale give you a bite of beta-carotene, and then there's a cornucopia of chopped fruits in this super-tossed salad.

Like I always say, pick the fruits and veggies that make you happy, or whatever looks best at the grocery store this week. Then dig into this satisfying salad for lunch - or dinner on a too-hot-to-cook night.

Chopped spinach for a super salad
Pile your salad bowl full of leafy greens!


1 1/2 cups frozen edamame
3 cups arugula, sliced
3 cups spinach, sliced
1 1/2 cups broccoli, shredded (check out your grocery store for the pre-shredded kind)
1 medium apple, chopped
1/2 cup sliced green onions
1 cup red grapes, halved
2/3 cup pomegranate seeds
2/3 cup sunflower seeds
2/3 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
Bottled raspberry vinaigrette dressing


Steam the edamame in the microwave for 5 minutes, then let cool. Toss together all ingredients. If you're not going to eat the salad right away, add the cheese and dressing right before serving.

Serves 4.
