  1. Raw Kale Salad

    This is a very simple salad that is easy to modify to your liking. Raw kale can be “chewy”; massaging the kale with the dressing or allowing the salad to sit for a few hours or overnight will help the kale become tender.
    • ½ cup of lemon juice
    • 1 tbsp of olive oil
    • 1-2 tsp of honey or maple syrup
    • 1 bunch of kale, rinsed, dried, and torn or chopped into bite sized pieces (about 5 cups)
    • ½ to 1 cup of finely chopped or grated carrots
    • ½ cup of craisins

    Ideas for modifying:
    • Try using chopped strawberries or whole blueberries or raspberries in place of the craisins if available.
    • Add other fresh vegetables, such as diced peppers, cucumbers or tomatoes for a different flavor.
    • Add toasted nuts, chick peas or other legumes, or cooked meat to add protein to this dish.
