Even if you don’t love kale in your smoothie, you might want to give this salad a try.
Once you massage the bitterness away, adding a little garlic and spice, you might love kale (right along with all the health benefits).
- 2 bunches kale (dinosaur)
- 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 T nutritional yeast (I like Braggs)
- ¼ cup lemon juice
- 3 large cloves garlic, minced
- 1T coconut aminos
- 1 minced anchovy
- ½ tsp fresh ground pepper
- ¼ tsp Colimo sea salt
Strip leaves from stems (and discard). Wash and dry leaves. Tear into small pieces and place in a large bowl. Add yeast, oil, lemon juice, garlic, aminos, anchovy, pepper, and salt. Firmly massage and crush the greens to work in the flavoring. Stop when the volume of greens is reduced by about half. The greens should look a little darker and slightly wilted.
You can wait and add the nutritional yeast as a topping if you prefer or won’t be using the entire mix at one sitting.
Servings: 2 large salads or 3-4 sides
Flip: Make it a meal with 4-6 oz salmon, shrimp, or chicken, or a hearty addition of plant-based protein.
P.S.Why Recovery Kale Salad? You massage the kale, silly!
