I'm really doing this for my mom at her request. She loves this kale salad that I make, and asks for it anytime that I buy kale. So, here's the recipe... I hope you guys love it as much as she does. Oh, and if you've ever read Kim Snyder's Beauty Detox Solution you'll notice that this salad is similar to one that she makes. It's the bomb.
"Cheezy" Kale Salad
1 head kale
1 lemon, juiced
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tomato, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
1 avocado, sliced
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 - 2 tbsp hemp seeds
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
Wash the kale thoroughly and tear it away from the stems. Add it to a salad bowl along with the lemon juice and sea salt. (You can save the stems and juice them later.) Using your hands, massage the kale while simultaneously tearing it into bite size pieces. Continue massaging until the kale is soft and slightly wilted (about a minute or two). Add the rest of the ingredients (except for the hemp seeds) and continue to mix until everything is incorporated. Garnish with the hemp seeds, serve and enjoy!
The best part about this salad? You can save the leftovers for the next day without worrying about wilted lettuce!
Stay tuned tomorrow for an amazing cheese sauce recipe. You won't believe how amazing it is until you see it and try it for yourself!
And last but not least, I leave you with a video that my brother sent me a few days ago. It's actually a haunting preview of a game called Chipotle Scarecrow. I really hope this game (or even just the preview) reaches millions of people. Check it out:
By the way, I may have cried while watching this video... and it may be because I watched it at 6am OR it could be Fiona Apple's rendition of "Pure Imagination" OR it could just be that I am Miss Sensitive... either way... you have been warned.
