Kale Salad Super Meal

September 20, 2016

It seems I often hear people say, "I don't like kale", or even (!) "I hate kale".  When I hear this I can't help but think to myself, "oh my goodness, that is such a shame!!!"  Kale can be so tasty, and it is easily one of the most nutrient-dense foods out there.

 

Nutrient dense = packed full of nutrients (vitamins and minerals and all sorts of other phytochemicals as yet unidentified) in a small amount of space.

 

So I offer this recipe up as a sort of challenge! :)  Here is - what I think - a super simple, easy-to-make, nourishing, filling, and yes, tasty, kale salad recipe.  I challenge you to make this at home, eat it, and then tell me that you still don't like kale.  If I win, cool; if you win, still cool.  You're entitled to your opinions :)

 

I call this a kale salad super meal because it has a well-balanced assortment of ingredients such that it turns out to be...a complete meal.  By this I mean that this salad contains healthy fats, carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, and minerals...all of the "nutrients" you should aim to consume in a meal, or at the very least, throughout the day.

 

The only other thing to add to this recipe would be to drink a full glass of room-temperature water about 10-30 minutes before eating (i.e. drink water while you're preparing the food).

 

Important note before you start: this salad requires use of Tuscan Kale!!!
