Marinated Kale Salad

After writing yesterday’s post on the amazing nutritional benefits of kale, I woke up this morning possessed with the thought of creating a new raw food recipe for a marinated kale salad. I love avocados and since tomatoes are in full season here, they had to be incorporated. For color and another burst of powerhouse nutrition, I added some purple cabbage and a purple onion.



Topped off with some protein packed hemp seeds and a wonderful lemon-garlic, flaxseed oil dressing, this quick salad not only packs a huge nutritional punch, it has a wonderful complexity of flavor that is refreshing and delightful to your palate! It is a perfect addition to your raw food diet recipe collection!

    There is something about some good fresh raw kale (I especially love the dino type as it is moister and easier to chew) that seems to instantly satiate any hunger or even cravings for junky food. Something about the mineral balance in there is very very powerful, thanks Kale! (and thanks Susan for this recipe, when you wake up with an idea I think it means the angels sent it to you)

    Looks delightful. Love kale salad. Will add avocado next time. I like to use white miso paste and umeboshi vinegar in my dressing.

    what if I don’t have flax oil, can I use something else as a substitute?

      You could use olive oil.
