Oh-So-Good Kale Salad

Raw kale salads are more popular these days since kale is a “superfood” and has many health benefits. We add some different ingredients to ours to make it chock full of tastes and textures.

8 cups dinosaur kale (or regular), cut up small
cup carrots, shredded
1 tablespoon sunflower seeds (roasted or unroasted)
1 tablespoon pine nuts
3 tablespoons dried cranberries
4 artichoke hearts, marinated style, cut in small pieces
1 avocado, cut in cubes
cup balsamic vinegar
cup olive oil
teaspoon sea salt

  • Toss cut up kale in bowl with oil, vinegar and salt. Let sit for 15 minutes, tossing twice to coat well.
  • Add remaining ingredients and toss well. The salad tastes best if you let it sit for a couple of hours to allow the kale to break down. But if you are short on time you can serve sooner.

Serves: 4-6

Total cooking time: 2 hours

I didn't realise letting something sit for 2 hours was considered cooking. It actually said 2 hours cooking time.. besides that it sure does sound good. we eat kale almost every day. Its easy and is good just steamed, some quinoa, with some coconut oil and a dash of salt, a homegrown sliced tomato on the other side and you sprinkle on some bleu cheese and you've got quick yummy dinner.
