lemony kale salad

photo-8We love kale around here!

The all mighty kale is full of vitamin K – important for strong bones, vitamin A – fostering healthy eyes and skin, vitamin C – important for the health of cell activity, among many other nutrients, making it one of the most nutrient-dense veggies around!

Here’s a simple, and lemon-liscious kale salad recipe. Makes for a perfect snack or appetizer.

Ingredients:

Serves 2

  • Curly leaf kale, 4 or 5 stems
  • Lemon, 2 tbsp freshly squeezed
  • Olive oil, 1 tbsp
  • Sea salt, pinch
  • Pepper, crack or two

Directions: 

1. Prep your kale: Rinse, spin dry or pat dry your kale. Remove the leaves from stems. Line up your kale leaves one on top of the other. Chop the leaves into thin slices.

2. Prep your dressing: Squeeze fresh lemon juice into a small container, add olive oil and whisk vigorously until the dressing looks vibrantly yellow.

3. Finish salad: Add kale leaves into your bowl, drizzle with your dressing. Massage the dressing into the kale, so it’s all coated and rubbed in. Top with a dash of salt and a crack of pepper.

Enjoy and chew well!
