Kale Salad

(Ideally, you would make this 2-3 hrs before eating)

Ingredients:

1 bunch of kale

1 tbsp. Olive oil

1 tbsp. Apple cider vinegar

2 tsp. Bragg’s Liquid Soy Seasoning (a healthier soy option)

*Optional 1 bunch of romaine

*Optional garlic fresh or dried

 

Directions: 

Rinse kale thoroughly, then remove leaves from stem and break or cut into bite size pieces and place in a salad bowl.

In a separate bowl or measuring cup mix, oil, vinegar and brags and garlic(optional).

Mix dressing in to kale thoroughly and set aside, please note that it is best to mix every 30-60 min if you can.

For those new to eating kale it is good for kale to soften before eating but romaine will likely get soggy very quickly. So if you add romaine lettuce just do it 10 min before eating.
