Kale Salad with Roasted Cauliflower and Broccoli

Kale Salad with Roasted Cauliflower and Broccoli

Ingredients

Scale

For the Salad:

  • 2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 10 asparagus spears, trimmed
  • 2 cups cremini mushroom, cleaned and sliced
  • 3 cups kale, torn
  • Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • Olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cup cooked grains (I used barley in this particular version, cook according to package instructions)
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste

For the Vinaigrette:

  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh Italian parsley, minced
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste

      Instructions

      For the Salad:

      Preheat the oven to 375˚. Toss the cauliflower and broccoli florets with some olive oil, salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet and put in the oven for about 10-15 minutes, until crisp golden on the outside, but still crisp on the inside. Toss the asparagus with some olive oil, salt and pepper, and put in the oven for about 4-5 minutes, until the asparagus are still crispy. While the vegetables are roasting, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the mushroom and sauté for about 10 minutes, until nice and crisp.

      For the Vinaigrette:

      Whisk all the ingredients in a small bowl. Taste and adjust seasoning. Place the kale in a large mixing bowl. Add a drizzle of lemon juice, olive oil, and a pinch of salt. Massage the kale with your hands for about 2 minutes. Add the cooked barley and mix well. Place the kale and grain mixture in two serving bowls. Top with the roasted cauliflower, broccoli, and asparagus. Add on the sautéed mushrooms. Drizzle with some vinaigrette, to taste, and enjoy a nice big bowl of deliciousness! It’s as easy as that! Bon appétit!
