Yes, yes, I’ve heard the joke… I don’t even give my husband a massage, why would I massage a salad? Well, because kale is a buzz word that all of you are likely hearing but you may buy it and decide you’d rather choke on the sole of a shoe than eat it. This preparation will make you fall in love with kale which is key because kale has more calcium in a one cup serving than milk, more vitamin C than your recommended daily value, more Vitamin A as well. It’s full of anti-oxidants, fiber… and if you prepare it this way, it’s simply delicious.
This is plain lacinato kale in a chiffonade cut. You can use any kind of kale, I just find this dark variety more delicious.
1 bunch kale (destemmed), chopped or chiffonade
dash of Celtic Salt
1.5 Tbsp Udo’s Oil or high quality Olive Oil
Juice of 1 lemon
1 Tbsp hemp seeds
1 tsp honey
1 whole avocado
1. Wash kale and remove stems. Dry using a salad spinner. Chop or chiffonade.
2. Add coarse salt and oil.
3. Massage for 45 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Add hemp seeds, lemon, honey and avocado.
5. Serve and enjoy!
