Chipotle Corn and Kale Salad

Chipotle Corn and Kale Salad

Yesterday was one of those days where I opened up the fridge, looked at the minimal amount of ingredients that I had on hand and thought, “What can I make with this?”. The result was a deliciously satisfying kale salad with a slight kick from chipotle vegenaise. Since I made this on a whim, I didn’t use any measurements for the salad dressing. If you’re having trouble making the dressing, less is always more when you start off. You can always add more if you feel that the dressing is lacking a certain flavor or ingredient, but it’s almost impossible to take away an ingredient once you’ve added too much of it. That being said, this is a very simple and easy salad to make and doesn’t take much time at all. Makes 2 servings.

What you will need:
2 small ears of corn or 1 big ear
1/2 bunch of kale (about 1/2 lb.)
1/2 orange pepper, chopped
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
lemon salted, raw sprouted seeds from Plant Kingdom Bakery
extra virgin olive oil
apple cider vinegar
stone ground mustard
Chipotle Vegenaise
Bragg’s Liquid Amino Acids

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and roast the ears of corn for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, rip the pieces of kale into bite size pieces (no need to use a knife!) and add to a mixing bowl with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, apple cider vinegar and an even smaller drizzle of Bragg’s liquid aminos. Add two generous spoonfuls of stone ground mustard and chipotle vegenaise each, then “massage” the dressing into the kale. Massaging the dressing into the kale will make it more tender and easier to eat. Then, carefully remove the kernels of corn from the cob with a knife and add to the salad along with chopped orange pepper, thinly sliced red onion and lemon salted raw sprouted seeds. Mix all ingredients together and serve in salad bowls.
