Raw Kale Salad

I am off to pick up my Farmer's Market products today for the first CSA of the season. I ordered Kale, Strawberries, green onions, Bok Choy, Spring lettuce mix, raw dog food for the dogs, and fresh herbs. 

I love to make recipes right away with all the fresh ingredients. That's the best way to get all the favor and freshness. I found this Kale salad on Raw Foods Diana's website. I think I will make it tonight and let you know how it is!




With Cranberry Poppy Seed Dressing!

Festive and delicious, this salad can be eaten alone or as a side dish. Kale is a great source of calcium, excellent for keeping the skin supple.

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch kale, stems removed and shredded
  • 1 pear, diced
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1/2 cup flax oil
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon grated onion
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 -1/2 cup water, for desired consistency

Directions

Place shredded kale in a salad bowl, sprinkle kale lightly with sea salt and massage gently to soften. Let sit.
Place flax oil, cranberries, honey, onion, lemon juice, poppy seeds and salt into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. Add water for desired consistency. Pour desired amount over softened kale, and mix. Add Pears and cranberries, then mix and serve.
Serves 2-4
Have a great raw day!
