Hail To Kale
My absolute favorite lunch staple is the 'kale salad' from Juice Generation! And, I've now perfected how to make this recipe at home, whew!
I've been on the kale bandwagon for at least the past year and I continue to love this green veggie more and more everyday! I know that sounds funny, but it's makes me quite happy.
This nutritional powerhouse meal tastes delish and is extremely easy to make!
And, the best thing about sturdy kale, you can toss the dressing on in the morning and it won't be soggy by lunch time, like ordinary mixed greens.
I hope you enjoy this salad as much as I do!
2 cups of kale, finely chopped
1/2 an avocado, diced
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
Sprinkle of sea salt
Sprinkle of black pepper
1 carrot, grated or finely sliced
1/3 cup of sunflower seeds
1/3 cup of raisins (optional)
In a medium-sized bowl, combine kale, carrots, sunflower seeds and raisins. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add the dressing to the kale combination according to taste. Carefully incorporate avocado into the salad.
Yields: 2 Servings
