Massaged Kale Salad
Massaging the salad drives the lemon juice and salt into the cell membrane of the Kale and lightly ‘cooks’ it – making it much more tame and “less angry”.
1 bunch dinosaur Kale, stripped and chopped
1 large (or 2 small) avocados OR 1/4 cup hummus
½ lemon, juiced
¼ – ½ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon, red chili flakes
½ red bell pepper, finely chopped
1 small carrot, grated
½ purple onion, diced
1-2 handfuls sweet cherry tomatoes
Throw stripped and chopped Kale leaves in a large bowl with avocado, lemon juice, sea salt, and red chili flakes
Mash and massage the avocado (or hummus) into the Kale with your hands until the avocado is spread evenly -like a dressing- throughout the Kale
Stir in red bell pepper, carrot, purple onion, and cherry tomatoes
If you can, let the salad sit for 30 minutes before serving, if not, dive in!
