Raw Kale Summer Salad
I know, I had you at raw. Many people are intimidated and don’t know how to prepare raw kale, but don’t fret, it’s easy! If you’re going to become a kale lover, you really need to train your palate to enjoy the freshness and tang of raw kale. Just be sure to add the lemon and salt and massage it in!
1 Bunch Kale (I used red Russian)
3 Ounces Blueberries
1 Sliced Avocado
2-3 Ounces Slivered Almonds
Begin by washing and drying the kale thoroughly. Tear the kale into small pieces, and place in a bowl.
Wash your hands really really well. Like, even more well than before you started cooking.
Add the juice of the entire lemon and about a teaspoon of salt to the kale to start. Begin massaging the lemon and salt into the kale. Continue rubbing the kale, until all surfaces of the kale are coated and shiny. Add all remaining ingredients and serve!
You may choose to add a little olive oil or a dressing of your choice to complete this dish. I usually toss a dash of olive oil, but that’s all. A super fresh salad that will compliment your summer dishes and summer lifestyle well!
