How to Make Superfood Salad
1. First, prepare the salad dressing by tossing all the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Whisk all the ingredients together by hand using a spoon for a thinner consistency. Alternatively, pulse all ingredients in a blender for a thicker texture.
2. Keep the dressing mixture aside and it will naturally thicken as the chia seeds absorb water and swell up.
3. Wash, massage, and tear up the kale by hand into bite-sized pieces. Drain the boiled or canned chickpeas and add them to the bowl of shrunken and softened kale. Add onion, strawberries, and blueberries to the mix.
4. Toss the dressing into the salad mixture, and evenly coat all the ingredients. Sprinkle sunflower seeds over top.
