Tropical Kale Salad with Seared Ahi

My family loves sushi and this salad is my go to when we have the hankering to go grab a few rolls at our favorite place in town. If seared ahi isn’t your thing, the salad base is delicious as is or topped with your protein of choice. I hope you enjoy this meal as much as my family does!

Quick tip:  Make extra to have for lunch the next day!

Tropical Kale Salad with Seared Ahi
Prep Time: 15-20 minutes | Serves: 4

Ingredients:

2 heads curly kale, chopped
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 mango, diced
2 carrots, chopped
½ cup macadamia nuts, chopped
Sunflower sprouts, or sprout of choice

Dressing:
1 avocado
½ lemon, juiced
1-2 tablespoons avocado oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
1 clove garlic, minced
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Garlic powder, to taste

For the Ahi:
1½ tablespoons coconut oil
4 fillets ahi tuna

Directions:

For a meatless version, please skip to step 2.

1.) Melt the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and season the fish with salt and pepper. Add to the hot pan and sear for 2 minutes on each side, then remove tuna from the heat. Slice when cool enough to handle.

2.) Place the kale in a large bowl and massage the dressing ingredients in until the kale tenderizes and starts to break down. Toss with the remaining ingredients, top with the tuna (of using) and serve.
