OK, so I’m here, but I’m not really here… My husband and I are currently on vacation, so I added in a few posts for this week for you guys while we are away! I was good and left my laptop at home this trip 🙂 This recipe is a simple, yet delicious, everyday salad recipe. I remember the first time I had an Asian citrus salad back in college at a little restaurant in Isla Vista, CA called Silvergreens. I ate it every single day for a week because I loved it so much. Now, I am not the biggest fan of salads because I tend to get bored of them pretty fast… but I love this one and could never get tired of it. I love the fresh taste of the mandarins, the crunchiness of the almonds, and the delicious citrus dressing. This salad is packed with vitamin C, and perfectly refreshing for the summer. Add griled marinated chicken to make it a healthy, complete meal.
- 4 cups chopped kale
- ½ cup mandarin slices
- ½ cup almonds
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 1½ tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
- Rinse and strain chopped kale. Transfer to a salad bowl and set aside to dry.
- Add olive oil, soy sauce, brown sugar, rice vinegar and toasted sesame seeds to a cruet and shake well.
- Add mandarins, almonds and dressing to the chopped kale and toss well.
- Serve immediately.
Your salad looks delish! Enjoy your vacation without a computer! I’m going on vacation on Wednesday and yes I am bringing my computer! 🙂
That is indeed one of my favorite salads too. Used to prepare it with baby spinach but the kale certainly adds a bite.
Hope you enjoy your vacation together.
Have fun on your vacations and the salad looks awesome.
I hope you’re having a great holiday. That’s very organised of you to prepare some posts in your absence – I find that very hard to do. I love the look of this salad and I think kale and mandarin would be wonderful together xx

This looks wonderful, but not sure I could ever get bored of salads. 🙂 Hope you’re having a great vacation!
