mmmm kale

14 Jun

So most people would never eat a raw kale salad. Too raw and bitter. That was my opinion as well a couple of years ago. I have thankfully discovered ways to eat delicious raw kale, preserving all it’s vitamin and nutrients. This salad recipe I got from one of the lovely raw classes at wholefoods, but it originally came from Sunny’s Raw Kitchen. The avocado dressing plus the hemp seed makes it like no other salad with a little kick.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kale is a dark leafy green that takes most people a while to truly appreciate

Besides the dressing, you are only adding hemp seed & chopped tomatoes

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The chipotle in the dressing definitely spices up the avocado

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Creamy Kale Salad

4 heads of kale (I usually half it to 2 heads. This does wilt down a lot to it’s not as much as it seems)

2 Tbs sea salt

2 Cups chopped tomatoes or halved baby tomatoes

1 cup hulled hemp seeds cup hemp seed

3 avocados

2 chipotle peppers (I didnt have peppers so I used a little ground cayenne)

1/3-1/2 cup olive oil

1 1/2- 2 Tbs agave

1/4 cup lemon juice

Chop kale and remove stems. Mix with salt and massage it until it wilts down. Add tomatoes and hemp seed. Combine dressing in vitamix or food processor and pour over kale.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Trust me this will be like no other raw kale dish you’ve have. It’s not bitter at all, just creamy and delicious.- so give this kale a try if you think you don’t like it!
