If you like kale…you’ll love this recipe. This salad makes a great base for your favourite toppings. I added grilled chicken, but you can add salmon, avocados, nuts, dried fruits or shaved Parmesan.
I massaged the dressing into the kale for about 1-2 minutes. I don’t mind the texture of kale but massaging it does make it softer. Also, the dressing gets really mixed in.
10 oz raw kale, ribs removed and discarded
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 garlic cloves, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
1. In a small bowl mix together the oil, lemon juice and garlic. Pour over the kale and with clean hands start massaging the dressing into the kale. Taste the salad and add salt and pepper and continue to massage again. Taste again and adjust seasoning accordingly.
2. Serve as a side to dinner or have as a lunch.
3. Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
