This is a quick, easy and delicious salad. I first saw this prepared at a raw foods class given by Dr. Ariel Policano and have been enjoying it ever since.
A small portion of the salad is a great side, but it is also filling enough to serve as a stand-alone meal.
1 head kale, shredded
1 cup tomato, chopped
2 tablespoon grapeseed or olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
celtic sea salt, to taste
½ teaspoon cayenne
In mixing bowl, toss all ingredients together. Mush everything together (with hands) to created marinated/wilted effect on kale. This makes it much tastier and easier to digest.
This recipe looks great and I love kale. I put it in my smoothies all the time. Especially the dino kale. I am not keen on the other kind of kale. The purple one. I put it in the smoothies but I don't think it would be good in this salad. Anyway.. I am going to try it tonight! Thanks kandace. :)
I've really started to incorporate more kale in my diet. If you do like kale, try out a "green smoothie":http://goneraw.com/recipes/58-Green-and-Gone-Smoothie. I love it!
I bought kale last night with my groceries because it was cheaper than romaine, can you believe that? I was worried the taste would be too strong but I make this recipe and it was fantastic! I love the heartiness of the kale, so much "meatier" than romaine, LOL.
Wow, I am definately going to try this since I never have eaten kale before. I really did not know that it could be eaten raw. LOL
I didn't have any avocado on hand, so I used tahini instead. It's delicious! I also tried it with some raita I made (using cashews instead of yogourt) - another pure delight!
I just saw a really amazing looking take on this salad by The Raw Chef - "Wilted Kale Salad with a Creamy Chipotle Dressing":http://therawchef.blogs.com/russell_james/2006/11/wilted_kale_sal.html
