Even my girls who are not the most likely to eat a salad with anything dark green in it, loved it.
Kale Salad, serves 6
1 bunch kale
1 teaspoon coarse salt, such as Celtic (amazing source of minerals)
1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 red apple, chopped ( I use Gala)
1/3 cup roasted and salted sunflower seeds
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 TBS red wine vinegar, preferably raw wine vinegar (inexpensive and excellent for your health!)
1 TBS raw honey, barely melted on very low heat. Honey is one of the most healing foods on the planet. If you heat it past 115 degrees F, it will lose much of it's healing properties. Raw honey is great to use on wounds because of it's antibacterial properties. My favorite brand is Honey Gardens Apothecary Honey.
1/8 tps stevia powder, optional (only add if you like the salad to be very sweet. I have not added this when I make it.)
1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled
Wash and dry kale. Tear it off from the stalks in bite size pieces. (the stalks are bitter and hard to chew)
Place torn kale in a bowl. Add olive oil and salt and massage kale for 2 minutes until it softens considerably.
Add other ingredients except feta cheese, finishing with vinegar and honey. Mix very well until all of the salad is well coated with dressing. Offer feta cheese on the side for those who care for it as not all people love it:)
