Delicious Kale and Turkey Bacon Salad

A few days ago I was going through my fridge and I had some kale I had to finish off, along with some turkey bacon that was sitting there since the beginning of the week so I had to come up with something crafty, healthy and paleo. So I came up with this amazingly delicious kale turkey bacon salad recipe.

What makes this recipe so good is that you can cook this recipe, and if you have leftovers, you can either eat it cold or hot the next day depending on what you’re in the mood for.

Start off by placing the pan on low to medium heat and place a dab of olive oil to warm up.
While the pan is heating you can quickly make your dressing by grabbing one mixing bowl and taking a tablepoon of olive oil, a dash of mustard and a splash of lemon juice, mix it up with
a spoon and taste to make sure the flavors balance out. You can also add salt or pepper to flavor, I had some of Jamie Oliver’s Chili salt that I added as a mix.

Then you can quickly take a few slabs of organic turkey back and cut them up into small cubes as pictured below and add to the warm pan, mix it up and place into a separate mixing bowl.

Clean off your cutting board and wash the Kale, cut off the stems and cut the kale into small cubes. Dry off the kale with a paper towel so the water doesn’t mix with the oil. Dip the kale into the frying pan with the olive oil, if need be you can add a little bit more olive oil to the pan. You should hear a little bit of a crackle when cooking this. I remove the kale when it begins to form a slightly crunchy substance and make sure the kale absorbs all the olive oil in the pan by using a spoon or spatula.

When that’s completed you can add the kale to the bowl with the marinade of lemon, mustard and olive oil and place your turkey bacon in the same mixing bowl, stir it up and enjoy!

This recipe is loaded with protein with the turkey bacon supplying close to 21g and a variety of vitamins and antioxidants that you get from the kale.
