You know those “superfoods” we always hear so much about? I’ve taken all my favorites and packed them into one majorly addictive salad that will make your skin glow and give you energy for days. Promise. Watch the video above to see how I massage the kale, mix the vinaigrette, and bring it all together, then keep reading for the recipe below. And if you’re looking for more healthy recipe vids, don’t miss the last one when I roasted perfect veggies, or the one before that when Chanel and I challenged each other to a breakfast smoothie face-off!

  4. Add basil, avocado, sprouts, walnuts, blueberries, and pear to the bowl, along with another drizzle of vinaigrette, and toss to combine.
  5. Divide salad beween 2 plates, top each with salmon, and fan a few avocado slices next to it. Drizzle with a bit more vinaigrette and eat!

    Cam, I made this last night, and I was truly obsessed with it. Two things:
    A) That really was the perfect way to cook salmon. It came out exactly right, so thanks for that!
    B) I added a ton of sriracha and really loved the heat against the fat of the salmon and avocado (and goat cheese which I added on a whim and which is not at all a superfood)

    This looks amazing; I can’t wait to try it!
    Any chance we can get the vinaigrette ingredient portions? (It looks like some of the recipe at the end got left off.) Thanks!

    I just made this last night and it was delicious! Loved the unexpected combination of blueberries + salmon and the sriracha added the satisfying extra punch.

    Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Made it tonight and that vinaigrette was incredible, absolutely crave worthy. Definitely a flavor profile I would have never thought to put together on my own.

    I have everything but just noticed I don’t have rice vinegar would white balsamic vinegar work. Help.

      It would totally work! The rice vinegar adds a really great flavor to the vinaigrette, but white balsamic will be delicious too.

      Here in Austin, they have them at Central Market and Whole Foods! 🙂 If you don’t have one of those, I would try a local farmer’s market. In a pinch, you could sub any kind of sprouts or even arugula. Good luck!
