Super Food Wilted Salad. Super foods are the best to eat! This salad makes them quick and tasty

Super foods are of course the perfect foods to be incorporating into our diets! It’s always a good bonus when you have a dish that is not only fast to make but also has a lot of those good ingredients.

To name all the health benefits in this salad would take far too long and would be rather boring…. So we will just summarize 😉

Kale is a well known super food, beans and grains make a perfect protein and are great fiber, vinegar helps the digestive system, mushrooms have been said to reduce risk of cancer and onions have long been used to help boost the immune system. Needless to say this salad is packed with good stuff!

Bitter greens are the kind we usually avoid. However we found that they actually complimented this dish quite nicely. The flavors are a little unusual making each bite a treat. The salad is very satisfying making it a great quick meal option. Bacon isn’t something we eat very often but with the good fats in it we definitely have some from time to time as long as it is nitrate and nitrite free. We always use organic and pasture fed too of course 🙂

Super Food Wilted Salad

Ingredients

Directions

Cook bacon and set aside. We like to cut the bacon into bite size pieces with good kitchen scissors, and fry them in a deep pan. This makes clean up Easy Peasy. Add onion to the bacon grease and sauté 2-3 minutes. Add mushrooms to the onion and continue to sauté for another 2-3 minutes. Stir in balsamic vinegar and sugar until well combined. Pour over salad greens while warm to slightly wilt them. Toss until all greens are coated.

To serve place some of the wilted greens mixture on a plate and top with black beans, cooked grains, mango and bacon.

Another trick we use to make this salad even faster, is to cook our beans and grains in our Instant Pot Pressure Cooker. We always try to have some in the refrigerator ready to go.
