Winter Massaged Kale Salad

Winter Massaged Kale Salad




Personally, I’m not a big fan of salads.  They’re cold, hard to digest and not very filling.

But, this massaged kale salad is a different kind of salad. It’s more like soup disguised as a salad.  Warming, healing and delicious.


Winter Massaged Kale Salad
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 4

This salad is simple and versatile.  I use different combinations of ingredients every time.  This is the basic recipe I use, but you can also add figs, goat cheese and sauteed persimmons, mandarins, parmesan cheese, brazil nuts and currants, or any combination of yumminess.


2 bunches purple curly kale
8 tablespoons un-pasteurized apple cider vingear
8 tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon gray salt

1 granny smith apple
handful golden raisins
1/4 cup roasted sunflower seeds
1/4 cup roasted hazelnuts
1/4 cup blue cheese


1. De-spine the kale and tear into bite sized pieces.  Dress the kale with the vinegar, oil and salt.
2. Massage well!  The kale will ‘wilt’ and reduce in size by 1/2.
3. Add other ingredients and mix well.  Enjoy!
