What You’ll Need
For the salad:
- 2 cups finely chopped kale
- 2/3 cup cooked brown rice
- 1/3 cup strawberries
- 1/4 an avocado
- 1/4 cup lightly chopped, roasted peanuts
- 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
For the dressing:
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 2 teaspoon sweetener (like blue agave syrup, honey, or maple syrup)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- a few cranks of pepper
In a bowl, toss the kale with the brown rice. Wash and slice the strawberries up – we think smaller slices are better because you get plenty of flavor while getting it in more bites. Then slice up the avocado and layer that on top. You can be like us and set up your bowl all pretty! Add the peanuts and sesame seeds as well. For the dressing, combine all ingredients in a jar and shake them up. You may have to do this for a minute or two because the peanut butter will have to be well combined, but it is worth it and a little extra workout! Pour it over the salad, mix, and enjoy!
