Kale Salad

Wow.  When I made this version of   kale salad  last week, I could hardly believe my good findings!

Here's how to make Kale Salad -


one big bunch or two of kale fresh from the market, stripped from the rib in the middle. (left in frig for more than 2 days it will wilt and not be good for fresh salad - it will have to be used for soups).

one lemon squeezed in.

1/4 cup less or more of olive oil

1.5 - 3 T balsamic vinegar

1 teaspoon salt    (more or less - I like sea salt)

One small red onion sliced thinly (or too your liking)

1-2 carrots in peeled slices

a dash of cayenne

Marinate the carrot and red onion with the rest of the ingredients while waiting for the kale to dry a bit.

the magic is put in the kale and with your hands squeeze it a bit, it instantly softens and becomes easy to chew!!!   The fresher the Kale the more easily it softens.

ENjoy :)

everything inspires me and goes into my painting during time passing. I often go throughout exploring my friend's art and their favorite photos until I am so full I can burst and then I go into my work. xo
