I feel like I have a lot of favorites when I share recipes with all of you, I think it’s because I only like to share the recipes that I know are great and that I thoroughly enjoy. So here we are again with another favorite, however this is a little different because this is hands down my favorite salad recipe.
I came up with it on accident, essentially I had limited ingredients in my fridge and I was having a craving for bacon (who doesn’t right?). Now, I eat this salad regularly because it’s simple to make and it’s filling, which is particularly good for getting me through my afternoon workouts.
You may even notice that I’ve created a wrap based on it in the post Paleo Smoked Salmon wrap, clearly I can’t get enough.
1 cup of kale and shredded brussel sprouts
3 strips of bacon, diced
3 – 4 ounces of smoked salmon
1/2 avocado, sliced
balsamic vinegar (I like to use a dressing that’s slightly thicker)
Place kale and brussel sprouts mixture on plate.
Cover mixture with bacon, smoked salmon, avocado slices.
Dress with desired amount of balsamic vinegar (or dressing of your choice).
That’s it! It’s simple but that’s part of why it’s so perfect. This salad will speak for itself.
