Dino Kale Salad...Rawr!

Saturday, November 21, 2015

Lots of people turn their nose up to kale because they don't prepare it correctly.  I crave this salad and find myself eating it at least three times week, it's that good. This recipe is my version from the restaurant True Food, my recipe is a bit spicier and minus the cheese of course.


1 large bunch of Dino Kale
2 Tablespoons of olive oil
1 Tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar
1 lemon, juiced
2 tsp of chopped fresh garlic
1 tsp of red pepper flakes
2 slices of Ciabatta bread, toasted
Salt & pepper to taste


Wash and remove the kale leaves from the stem. The stem is very bitter so you defiantly do not want to eat this part of the kale leaf. Chop up your kale leaves and place them in a large bowl, I use a wooden bowl because I swear it makes the salad taste better. Add the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, garlic, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, & salt and pepper. With a clean hand massage all of these ingredients into your kale for at least 3 to 5 minutes. This step is very important you want tender kale leaves.  Next let this mixture marinate into the kale leaves for a good hour before adding the chopped toast on top and serving. 

Enjoy and remember to always be mindful and eat with compassion!
