Krista's Kale Salad

My good friend Krista gave me this recipe.  I'm a relative newcomer to the joys of eating kale, especially raw, so I was excited to try this recipe.  It is DELICIOUS!

For the salad:
-kale (mine is from my garden!)
-sunflower seeds

For the dressing:
-juice from 1/2 lemon
-juat about equal parts Braggs Amino Acids and olive oil (you may need to use more oil and less Braggs which is very salty.)
-pepper to taste

Remove tough stems from kale if you like and cut into bite sized peices.  Toss with a good amount of dressings and then use your hands to gently knead dressing into the kale, this helps break up the toughness of the kale.  I let it sit in the fridge for two hours.  Then add the rest of the salad ingredients and more dressing if needed.  I served it salad with fresh asparagus lightly sauteed in Bragg Amino Acids and olive oil.

Yum!  Thanks Krista!

And for dessert...

  1. Yum! I love kale!

    Have you tried kale "chips?" You toss in olive oil/seasoning and bake till crispy. They are my favorite way to eat kale :0)

    I should try this recipe though, thanks for sharing!
