Massaged Kale Salad

11:30 am on 24 June 2013

(Serves 4)


  • 1 large bunch curly kale, de-stemmed and torn or chopped into pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • any desired toppings


Add the kale to a medium mixing bowl along with the salt and lemon juice. "Massage" kale for five minutes, or until leaves are sweet and tender. Add the olive oil and give one more quick "massage."

Add any additional toppings as desired. Some of my favorites are roasted nuts, fresh fruit, dried fruit, sprouted quinoa, homemade croutons, roasted squash, or sprouts.
