Kale salad is so easy and delicious and versatile. You can make a big batch at least once a week and pack it for lunch or have it as a side at breakfast or dinner. You can even sauté it in a pan with some coconut oil and serve it warm!
Kale is a nutritional powerhouse that actually lives up to the hype. It is an excellent source of fiber and protein per cup which helps you feel fuller longer. It’s immune boosting providing vitamins, minerals and omega-3’s.
A Kale Caesar Salad is also a delicious meal or side. Check out my favorite one here.

Lacinato Kale (one bunch)
Curled Kale (one bunch)
2 Tbsp. Lime Juice
2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
1 clove Garlic diced
2 Tbsp. Red Onion diced
1/3 cup Tahini
¼ cup Olive Oil
½ cup Go Raw Spicy Seed Mix*
Remove the kale leaves from stems and tear or chop into bite sized pieces. You want about 4-6 cups of raw kale-place it in a large bowl. Add olive oil and massage it into the kale with your hands – this is essential!! It helps break down the kale and make it more easily digested. Add garlic and onion. Cover with lemon juice, lime juice, tahini and olive oil. Top it all with spicy seed mix. Massage all ingredients into the kale using your hands or tongs. All kale should be well coated.
Optional add-ins: chopped tomato, beans, baked tofu, dried cranberries, avocado
*Go Raw Spicy Seed mix is available on Amazon or at many Whole Foods and health food stores. If you cannot find it, just use a mix of pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, herbs and spices. Try cilantro, jalapeno powder, cayenne, sea salt, garlic powder, etc.
