1 Bunch Kale, with the mid-rib removed and cut into small pieces.
½ teaspoon sea salt
Juice of ½ lemon
3 Tablespoons olive oil
¼ cup nuts (lightly toasted pecans, hazelnuts, pine nuts are some of my favorites)
1 tomato diced
Massage the kale with the salt and the lemon juice, until it starts to break down. This takes about 2 minutes. Mix in Olive Oil, tomato & nuts. Mix well and serve.
Note: There are endless ways you can change this recipe! You can use lime juice rather than the lemon juice, and replace the olive oil with a small avocado, but after you massage in the lime juice and salt, then massage in the avocado. It’s like adding an instant creamy dressing.
I have also added feta cheese and olives along with the original recipe.
Just remember this recipe is very addicting, and if you make it for a pot luck you will always be ask to bring it.
