Power Salad with Spicy Honey Vinaigrette

Power Salad with Spicy Honey Vinaigrette is packed with flavor & nutrients. Kale, broccoli, almonds, & others then drizzled with Spicy Honey Vinaigrette. Simply SatedI just ate a huge serving of Power Salad with Spicy Honey Vinaigrette & Grilled Salmon (or Chicken). I don’t know if it is the sway of suggestion, the nutrient-packed ingredients, or both, but I feel like an empowered lioness. Excuse me while I roar.

I love eating salad named Power Salad, and only wish I could take credit for coming up with such an impressive label, but alas, I cannot. Possibly Mickey Mouse can since it was Disney World where I tasted the inspiration for this recipe.

Power Salad with Spicy Honey Vinaigrette is packed with flavor & nutrients. Kale, broccoli, almonds, & others then drizzled with Spicy Honey Vinaigrette. Simply SatedWhen I first read the name Power Salad on the menu, I envisioned miniature body-builders made of kale, power lifting Brussels sprout dumbbells while popping roasted almonds, sunflower seeds and dried berries into their mouths.  My imagination became recipe reality when, along with the aforementioned ingredients, I included sliced radishes, radicchio, goat cheese and grilled salmon.  Are synonyms of the word “power” – words like strong, robust, vigor and energy coming to mind?

Simply SatedThe vibrant colors of Power Salad remind me of gorgeous batik fabrics, and I knew this salad would need a dressing just as beautiful to show it off. I immediately thought of honey – like liquid gold. I also knew a dressing infused with a little sweetness, fragrant spices and a kiss of heat would work well and knew Spicy Honey Vinaigrette would be perfect.

Simply SatedSpicy Honey Vinaigrette is truly one of the best things about this recipe. Power Salad loves Spicy Honey Vinaigrette and the feeling is mutual.   Please don’t leave one out when making the other – they were created to enjoy life as one.

Simply SatedThe lioness in me is getting restless, so it’s time to go for now. If you hear a distant roar in the stillness of the night, you’ll know who it is.

Spicy Honey Vinaigrette has a flavor profile that delivers a subtle punch without TKOing the taste buds. Cider vinegar, honey, soy sauce, garlic & ginger. Simply SatedEnjoy!

PS.  If you aren’t a fan of salmon, grilled chicken works beautifully in this dish as well.
