    Serving a healthy salad for dinner is one of the best ways I know to eat a good #SundaySupper without overindulging in anything but flavor.

    Nutrient-dense kale starts us off, and to that we add protein-y chickpeas and canned wild salmon. It’s all anointed in a light, orangy dressing made from tart Seville oranges, in season right now. Because they are quite sour, they’re usually made into a classic orange marmalade, but I’m using them as a stand-in for lemons in this dressing.

    You won’t feel deprived of anything, I promise!

    Recipe: Raw Kale Salad with Chickpeas and Salmon in Orange Dressing

    Summary: Healthy kale, chickpeas and wild salmon are anointed in a tangy Seville orange dressing to make a Raw Kale Salad perfect for a light dinner.

    Ingredients

    • 4-5 lacinato kale leaves, washed, stemmed and cut into thin ribbons (chiffonade cut)
    • 1 (15-ounce) can organic chickpeas, rinsed and drained
    • 1 (6-ounce) can wild Alaskan salmon, drained (I used Bear & Wolf Pink Salmon from Costco)
    • 1 Seville orange (need 4 tablespoons juice and 1 teaspoon zest)
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons minced Kalamata olives (or use tapenade)
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 1 shallot, minced
    • ¾ teaspoon dried dill
    • Garnish: 3 tangerines (1 for each serving, segmented) and 6 Kalamata olives (2 for each salad, halved)

    Instructions

    1. Add all ingredients to a large salad bowl. Stir and toss to combine well. Place in a lidded container and allow to marinate and rest in the refrigerator for 4-24 hours, for best results. This variety of kale will hold up well overnight!
    2. Serve in wide bowls and garnish with tangerine segments and Kalamata olive halves if you like.

    These sour oranges are prized for making orange marmalade, and are quite juicy and seedy. Seville oranges give this salad a crisp, clean taste.  Melissa’s Produce sent a sample of the Seville Oranges for recipe testing.
