Kale Salad

OK, we all know Kale is loaded with everything good, but it is sometimes hard to figure out what to do with the stuff. Here is a recipe, from Whole Food's website, that is really easy and tangy delicious. It a raw recipe, so all you have to do is chop, add the marinade, mix and eat.
I used one bunch of Kale and doubled the marinade, because I'm not sure what Whole Foods considers a bunch. Plus, I'm a fan of dressings. I like food to be appropriately coated, and with this recipe everything that coats it is healthy. Basically, I love this recipe.

Here goes:


2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 to 2 teaspoons chili powder
Salt to taste
2 bunches kale, stems and tough ribs removed, leaves very finely chopped

pine nuts (optional)


In a large bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice, chili powder and salt. Add kale, toss to combine and serve.

*So you can decide if the above recipe is enough dressing/marinade or if you want to double it.

Anyway, the Kale cooking adventure has begun!
