Garden Salad

When Mikaila first saw me make this, she proclaimed, "it looks like a garden!" And herein, my famous Garden Salad was born.

  • 1 bushel of kale, washed, stemmed, and chopped
  • 1 medium size carrot, grated
  • 1 purple cabbage, grated
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • 2 servings of tofu, (about 1/2 block of tofu), cubed
  • 1 cup Daiya mozzarella style shreds
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
Serves 4-6.

  1. Toss all ingredients in a large salad bowl using tongs.
  2. That's all.
  3. Get your Garden on, friends! By the way, this holds really well in the refrigerator in case you have leftovers.


  1. Yum, looks yummy! :) I love big fruit or veggie packed salads. Especially during the warmer months. :)

  2. Sounds and looks much better than the usual "garden salads" touted at restaurants.
