While the boys were on break during the holidays we got really into kale. My older one prefers his steamed and tops it with ume plum vinegar and toasted sesame oil. The little one, however, joins us in eating my raw kale concoctions.
These raw salads are super healthy, crunchy and quite delicious. We are hooked on them.
- 1 bunch kale
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- ¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon red onion, finely chopped
- 1 orange, peeled and sliced
Chop the kale into thin ribbons (almost like a chiffonade)
Drizzle the kale with olive oil and sprinkle with salt
Massage the kale with your hands to soften it, then allow it to sit for 5-10 minutes
Add the lime juice, vinegar, onion and orange
Allow to marinate for 10 minutes
Prep Time 10 mins
Resting Time & Marinate Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 mins
I have made a different kale salad every night for a while now, so there could be a forthcoming kale salad series. Stay tuned.
