Roasted veg are a great starting point for winter salads. I like to roast a big tray of root veg and pumpkin at the start of the week and then use them during the week to put together salads like this one.
I've opted for a garlic and spice chia dressing here but it tastes good with a regular vinaigrette or an Indian-spiced yoghurt dressing as well. Kale boosts immunity, encourages brain health, increases energy and assists digestion.
Chia seed dressing
- To make Chia Seed Dressing, combine all ingredients in a small jar or bowl and allow to soak for 10 minutes.
- Arrange kale, pumpkin or kumara and beans on a serving platter or divide between 2 plates. Top with grapes, dried cranberries or cherries, pumpkin seeds and brazil nuts. Drizzle with dressing to serve.
