Green Power Tower Salad

This Green Power Tower Salad is a tall stack of green fuel for your busy day! Enjoy the protein-rich chickpeas and silky avocado as they mingle with the flavor-infused, ribbon sliced greens and sweet winter citrus on the side. Served with a creamy Maple Tahini Dressing.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups green chard*, thinly chopped into ribbons
  • 2 cups kale*, thinly sliced into ribbons (dinosaur kale used)
  • 1/2 cup chickpeas/garbanzo beans (canned/organic)
  • 1/2 cup avocado, diced (plus a few slices for garnish)
  • 1/8 teaspoon lemon zest
  • Sunny Maple Tahini Dressing

 

  • PREP TIME 10
  • COOK TIME 5
  • Serves 2

Directions

  1. Rinse your greens under hot water then rinse in chilled water. Spin or pat dry. Slice into thin ribbons and place in large mixing bowl. Add lemon zest.
  2. Rinse beans in hot water then in cold water. Remove chickpea skins if desired. Toast in saute pan if desired. Set aside.
  3. Dice avocado and add to greens bowl. Set aside a few slices for garnish.
  4. Add your dressing to your greens bowl and toss well. If you do not like your avocado a bit soft-edged from the tossing, add it after tossing greens with dressing.
  5. Fold chickpeas into the greens.
  6. To serve, place greens on a serving plate, top with avocado, then peel and separate one satsuma and add to the edge of the plate.

Note: We enjoy the salad best when chilled in the fridge for at least an hour so the tahini gets all chilled and creamy, but you can also eat right away.

*Organic greens preferred.
