Curly Kale & Strawbery Salad!

curly kale

Ready for the simplest and most stunning salad ever? !

You need: fresh kale, organic strawberries, half a lemon, some olive oil and a little sea salt.  (*balsamic vinegar and nuts are optional)

Clean a bunch of curly kale by rinsing the leaves off individually.  Pat them dry in a towel and either pull or cut the stem out with kitchen scissors. You can use any color or type of kale, but I like the mild-flavored curly green for this.

Now, tear the leaves in pieces and plop it in a bowl. Mix in a few tablespoons of olive oil, the juice of half of a juicy lemon and a sprinkle of sea salt.

Massage the leaves for about a minute with your hands  (you’ll feel the texture change… along with the nutrient availability!) and then leave them sit while you slice up a bunch of fresh strawberries.

Sprinkle a bit of very aged very amazing balamic vinegar (or skip it!) on the strawberies, and then pile them onto plates filled with kale.  This makes 2 huge salads or 4 decent-sized side salads.  You can add nuts or seeds to make it more substantial, but I always feel less is best!  Enjoy!  xoxo Dana
