Spicy Kale Salad
This is a version of my Favorite Kale Salad which I make ALL the time! Kale is such a nutritional powerhouse but it can be quite bitter and tough in texture….unless you know how to prepare it, then it turns to MAGIC!
This salad is so easy to make and tastes amazing. It’s a wonderful way to get some very serious dark leafy greens into your diet and a big boost of minerals! This time I added a few extra ingredients to give it a little kick!!
Spicy Kale Salad:
- 1 bunch kale
- 1 avocado
- juice of one lemon
- 2 TBS Nutritional Yeast Flakes
- a couple dashes of Tamari
- sea salt to taste if needed
- 1/2 dropper liquid stevia
- dash or more to taste of cayenne and fresh ground black pepper
- chopped vegetables of your choice
First, grab the kale by the stem and strip the leaves from the stem with your hands. I like to save the stems and use them later in my veggie juices! Again, using your hands, tear the kale into small pieces and place in a large bowl. Scoop out 1 whole avocado and add to the bowl, along with lemon juice and just a dash of sea salt.
Use your hands to squeeze, massage and mix the kale, avocado, lemon juice and salt. Continue until the avocado is mixed in thoroughly and the kale has reduced in volume by about half. Massaging the kale is not only fun but also helps to make the tough leafy greens easier to digest. Taste the mixture and adjust flavors as needed.
Next add the nutritional yeast, tamari, cayenne, and fresh cracked pepper to the kale and mix well.
Finally, top your salad with any raw veggies you like.
