Kale salad | Hardin Acupuncture

Kale salad

Kale is such a nutritious, delicious food – it has the most protein of any of the green leafy vegetables and is loaded with lots of other vitamins and minerals.  I actually didn’t start eating kale until my early 20’s.  My brother always fed it to his pet iguana – never knew it was good for me too!  I tend to wait until the warmer months to enjoy raw veggies, and lightly saute them during the fall and winter.

1 bunch kale
1 avocado
Juice of 1 lemon
Celtic sea salt
chopped walnuts
1 pear

1. Remove the tough stems from the kale and tear the remaining leaves into small pieces
2. Place in a large bowl with the avocado (roughly chopped) and the lemon juice
3. Sprinkle with sea salt and then massage the mixture with your hands for about 2 minutes
4. Add the walnuts and the chopped pear and you’re done!

This tastes even better the next day.  The lemon juice helps break down the kale a bit to make it tasty while still raw.  It’s endlessly variable – feel free to alter the recipe!
