Bison and Kale Salad


This salad. I don’t even know if you can call it a salad because it has 2 or 3 ingredients. But is so good! And it is so simple!

After a tough Crossfit workout (rowing 2000m omg) I decided to go to the grocery store and when I saw grass-fed bison was on sale I immediately started craving it. I had also picked up a kale salad kit that was sale.

We had some leftover roasted sweet potatoes on sale that I added in but you don’t have to do that. I ate the bison and kale together without the potatoes and it was just as flavorful on its own!

Bison and Kale Salad {Paleo/GF} [Serves 4]

  • 1 lb (12oz) grass-fed, organic ground bison (I used Simple Truth from Kroger)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 T dried parsley
  • 5 cups chopped kale (or 1 bag of kale salad mix)
  • 1 T spicy brown mustard
  • 1 T coconut aminos (or soy sauce or tamari)

Brown bison in a cast iron skillet. Add in salt, pepper, parsley half way through the cooking of bison. Transfer cooked bison to a bowl. Add chopped kale to the leftover grease in the skillet. Add in mustard and coconut aminos. Cook until kale is wilted. Add bison back in and cook for a few more minutes while they flavors combine.

Pair with sweet potatoes, gluten-free crackers, bread, whatever!
