Massaged Kale Salad with Seeds and Fruit


I had truly never even had Kale until about two years ago. Now I cannot seem to get enough of this powerhouse phytonutrient. I love it soups, smoothies, salads, stir-fry, as chips,and with eggs. This is truly my favorite recipe for salad and have to seriously portion it out or I could eat the whole thing in one sitting. Not that this is the worst thing to over eat but not necessary. Kale is tough so it needs to be massaged to break it down.
Massaged Kale Salad with Seeds and Fruit
1 bunch Kale Leaves
1 TSP himalayan pink salt
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup red onion,. chopped
1/3 cup fruit sweetened dried cranberries(no sugar added)
1 green apple, cored and chopped
2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
2 TBSP Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar

Wash and dry kale. Remove from stems. Stack leaves and cut into ribbons. Massage kale with pink salt until it is broken down and looks wet (1-2 minutes)
Transfer to salad bowl top with onion, seeds, cranberries, apples and dress with oil and vinegar.

Feel free to add grilled chicken or shrimp for added protein or serve as a side salad to your meal. I love it just as is 

Do you like kale?

….and that is what is for lunch today here, what is for lunch at your house? Inquiring minds want to know.
