Massaged kale? Yes! It is really tasty and simple!
Plus, it is Loaded with vitamins! Vitamin A, C, K, B1, B2, B3, B6, Folate, Manganese, Calcium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Omega-3 fatty acids, Omega-6 fatty acids, Fiber and more!
And the simple task of massaging kale basically breaks down the kale to make it more easy to digest…essentially wilting it.
2-3 cups of organic raw kale leaves (I like the “dino” variety – it looks curly like my hair)
1 tsp. of olive oil
1 lemon, juiced
1 tsp. of coarse sea salt
De-stem the leaves from the stem by sliding your index finger and middle finger (see photo) down the center of the leaf while pulling the leaf away from you with your other hand.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl
Using a massaging action (kinda like kneading dough), tear leaves apart and massage everything for about 3-5 minutes or until the leaves are softened.
Use this as a salad base or add toppings. I added sprouts. You can add leftover protein, like chicken or shrimp. I also like to use roasted veggies like tomatoes, onions or peppers. And remember the Good fat – maybe some avocado slices.//
What would you add to your salad, to make it perfect for you and your family?
