Delicious Kale Salad

Posted by parsingtime on May 10, 2013

This salad is yummy. Try it. And if you don’t try the salad make the dressing and put it on something — so good. Works well with other lettuces if you don’t like kale.

1 bunch lacinato (dino) kale

½ tsp sea salt

2 Tbsp cold-pressed olive oil

Zest of 1 lime

3-4 Tbsp lime juice (juice of 1 lime)

1 clove garlic, chopped

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp agave nectar

1 avocado, sliced

1 apple, chopped

De-stem kale and chop in thin ribbons. Place kale leaves in bowl and sprinkle with sea salt, massage kale for about 2 minutes until it releases moisture, drain moisture off. This allows the bitter flavor to escape and activates the enzymes. In a large salad bowl, whisk together oil, lime zest and juice, garlic, cumin and agave. Slice avocado and apple, fold these ingredients into kale leaves and toss with dressing. Serve cold.

I’ve also added leftover chicken/shrimp to this salad with happy results.
