I don't ever want to hear that salads are boring again. Sure, a green salad without dressing isn't exactly the most exciting thing in the world, but fortunately there are no hard and fast rules and – as is often the case in cooking – creativity is queen when it comes to delicious new flavour sensations! Personally, I'm a huge fan of kale salads. The secret to making tough kale a little softer and more palatable, while still retaining the crunch, is simply to massage it very gently for 2-3 minutes in the dressing. Complete the remaining steps with plenty of passion and in no time at all you'll have a dish full of love that will transport you to cloud number nine!

How it's done

Beetroot

Mix the beetroot, maple syrup and oil in a bowl, season, spread on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

Roast for approx. 30 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 180°C. Remove and allow to cool slightly.

Dressing

Mix the orange zest and juice with all the other ingredients up to and including the chilli flakes, season.

Sweet potatoes

Blitz the sweet potatoes in a food processor or blending cup to roughly the size of rice grains. Heat in a non-stick frying pan along with 2 tbsp of dressing, cook over a medium heat for approx. 10 mins. while stirring. Place in a bowl and allow to cool slightly. Mix in the almonds.

Salad

In a bowl, mix the kale with the remainder of the dressing until it becomes softer. Mix in the sweet potatoes and almonds, plate up. Top with the beetroot, garnish with the raspberries.

Good to know
Tip: Instead of sweet potatoes, you can also use carrots or butternut squash for a lighter version, or even half sweet potato, half carrot/squash.
Tip: If you're not a fan of orange in salads, replace the orange with lime or lemon.
