I found this fabulous salad posted at Sprouted Kitchen. It lasts for days, stays crunchy and can be made after your kiddos go to bed or during nap time. Having this on hand is sure to give you some extra energy during your day. The photography on this website is beautiful and it’s always an unexpected treat when I receive these recipes in my inbox.

POWER GREEN SALAD (from Sprouted Kitchen)
- 3 cups ribbed and chopped kale
- handful of chopped parsley
- 1 cup cooked black lentils
- 1 green apple, diced
- half an english cucumber, diced
- 1/2 cup toasted pepitas
- 1 cup shaved parmesan
- one clove garlic
- 1 Tbsp. honey
- 1 Tbsp. dijon
- juice of one lemon
- 1/3 cup pumpkin seed oil or extra virgin olive oil
- salt and pepper
In a large salad bowl, combine the kale, parsley, lentils, apples, cucumber, pepitas and parmesan.
For the dressing, blitz everything in a food processor or blender, with salt and pepper to taste, until the garlic is smooth.
Pour the dressing on the salad and toss well to coat. Garnish with more parmesan if you wish. The salad will keep in the fridge for a full day and slowly loose it’s crunch from there.
