Massaged Kale Salad 


Massaging kale makes it taste really good. The leaves soften and not only is it easier to digest but massaging brings out the sweetness of the kale. Trust me on this one. You have to try it! I was inspired to make this salad because of how good my kale chips tasted; it is a similar process. You can add soy sauce instead of salt if you wish. 


1 bunch curly kale
1 cucumber, diced
1+ teaspoon olive oil
1 avocado
1 lemon
Walnuts (roasted; see below)
1 apple (optional)

Remove leaves from stems of kale. I like to hold the stem and pull the kale leaf off. Drizzle with olive oil and massage into leaves. Leaves should begin to wilt and be shiny. Make sure you get all the little crevices. Squeeze juice from ½ lemon. Massage. Add more lemon if necessary. Add avocado. Massage. The kale should be pretty limp now.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add diced cucumber, cranberries, and walnuts. Dice the apple (no need to peel) if using.


Roasted Walnuts

Place a saute pan over high heat.

Once the pan is hot, add walnuts and stir for 2 minutes or until walnuts are fragrant.

Remove immediately to cool.
