Dinosaur Kale Salad
appetizer
2-4
 
Discovered and loved this kale from Peas & Thank You. A simple citrus Dijon dressing on this slightly bitter chewy green is delish. I eat the entire bowl in two sittings. Yum.
Ingredients
  • 2 bunches of Dinosaur/Lacinato/Tuscan Kale
  • 3-4 Tbl Dijon mustard
  • 1 lime (or lemon)
  • Olive oil
  • Honey
  • White wine vinegar (optional)
  • Nutritional yeast (optional)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Nuts/Seeds (Sunflower Seeds, Pistachios, or Pine nuts)
Instructions
  1. Wash the kale and tear off the leaves leaving any very thick stems behind (save for smoothies or juicing). Briefly dry with kitchen towel or spin in salad spinner.
  2. In the bottom of a large mixing bowl, add juice from citrus, Dijon, drizzle of Olive Oil, Squeeze of Honey, S&P. Splash of vinegar & Nutritional Yeast if using.
  3. Add Kale leaves, use hands to mix well. Taste, adjust dressing ingredients as needed (if too bitter add more honey etc.)
  4. Sprinkle with seeds or nuts. Yum!
