I’m not sure what it is, but I have been making these Summer Rolls on a weekly basis for quite some time now.  Pretty much all summer!

It could be their simplicity, the use of fresh herbs from my garden, the fact that there is no need to turn on the oven, or it could easily be the fact that one package of rice paper contains quite a bit and I want to use up what we have in our cupboards 😉

Regardless, these Summer Rolls are delicious but I always thought they needed to be paired with something…and that’s where this Asian Kale Salad came into the picture.

I had pinned images of a kale salad like this on pinterest (which is how a lot of my recipe ideas get started!), so I started playing around with ingredients and dressing ideas and came up with this super simple and winning salad.

This could easily be served as a side, but I often enjoy this salad as a main dish for a light lunch or light dinner paired with just about any protein.  My favorites are salmon or grilled chicken, but I can image it tasting great with just about anything you can think of!

Typically, I don’t care for leftover salad, but because the kale leaves are so hearty this salad actually tastes fantastic a day or two after (in my opinion!!).

For those with dietary concerns, this salad is gluten free, dairy free, grain free, vegan, and FODMAP friendly.  And for those without dietary concerns, this salad is refreshing, crisp, and has just the right Asian flavor thanks to the combo of lime, tamari, and ginger in the dressing.
