Fajita Kale Salad

If you want true recipe freedom, the ability to create your own recipes, you must learn how to make a variety of types of recipes. Then you can mix and match and combine them to make something totally new. That’s what I did with this one. I combined my Marinated Portobello Mushroom Strips with Southwest Marinated veggies and a kale salad and voila! You have Fajita Kale Salad. Ok, maybe it would be more Fajita like with guacamole and salsa but the mushrooms reminded me of the meat in fajitas so I’m sticking with it  🙂 Maybe next time. A new addition to the 50 Shades Of Vegan Kale Challenge. (This is #26)

Step one is make the mushroom strips using southwest or fajita seasoning. Step two is to put together southwestern inspired veggies along with your kale. Toss it together with the more southwestern seasonings and dressing ingredients. Marinate for a bit. Plate and top with the mushrooms. So yummy!
