Kale and Apple Salad
This can be used as a side or add some shrimp or chicken for a full meal.
But let’s be serious. WHO likes Kale?? Besides my best friend who is super healthy and beautiful. However with this salad everyone in my household likes Kale!!
The key to this is massaging the kale. And making the dressing touch each piece!
Juice of three lemons
3 Garlic cloves
1/2 c Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
4 cups Kale
1 Granny Smith or golden delicious apples chopped
Extra sharp Cheddar cheese or goat cheese
Fresh Parmesan cheese
Sunflower seeds or almonds
Massage the kale for maybe five or ten minutes with EVOO and remove any stems.
Dice the cheese.
Chop the nuts.
Add both to the kale.
Top with Parm.
Add the dressing.
Toss until all of the dressing is mixed in.
Top with salt and pepper.
Option to add more garlic and lemon juice to the dressing.
Best Dressing Salad
THIS truly blew my mind. Not only was it super quick and easy to make, it was so good.
I’ll give you recipe for dressing then the salad:
• 3/4 cup of flax seed oil
• 1/4 cup of coconut oil
• 1/2 cup of balsamic vinegar
• 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar
• 6 tablespoons turmeric
• 1 table spoon basil
• Two teaspoons unrefined sea salt
• Two teaspoons fresh ground pepper
• Two tablespoons Dijon mustard
Do it all to taste if you want, but stay heavy on the turmeric; it’s very good for you, and it’s the most important ingredient to this recipe.
This salad dressing will have even the pickiest kids eating vegetables. It’s very versatile. Use it as a dip, a marinade, or whatever. It’s amazing.
