Kale Taco Salad (Vegan)

Taco Salad is one of those American dishes that are utterly foreign here, and sometimes I get a real jones for it. Not the traditional version with ground beef and cheese - yuck - but rather this fresh version. 

Base of massaged kale, to make it extra vegan. Gives it a nice heft. *See note below. Lettuce works too, obvs.  
Fibely chopped red onion
Red Pepper
Canned black olives (not optional! These are what make it taste like my mom's!)
Kidney beans
If I were in the US, I would also add these 'tamed jalapeƱos' that are available there - so good if you can find them. 

Start with equal parts vegan mayo and hot salsa, adjust to taste. It's hard to find good ready-made salsa in the UK, but luckily the underwhelming jarred variety works really well here. 

Serve huge portions, with tortilla chips!

*How and why massage kale? You basically work the kale for a while with your fingers to make it tender enough to eat raw. Don't be gentle!



Yum! Taco Salad!
