This is a kale salad dressing I improvised when I came home from the gym starving and just ready to eat. (Sorry, no picture as I ate it all too quickly.) Of course, I didn’t want to stuff my face with my boyfriend’s chips and other tempting treats, so I whipped up a quick kale salad and it was actually quite good.
Wash and tear kale from stalks and break into bite-sized pieces. Thinly slice half a red onion (shallot would work too) and place in a medium-sized bowl.
In a small bowl, whisk with a fork equal parts: flax oil, cider vinegar, Bragg’s liquid amino acids, lime juice, and a half part maple syrup.
Pour some of the dressing over the kale, add some salt and pepper and begin to massage. If after about a minute some of the kale is still dry, add some more dressing. (Any leftover dressing can be saved for future kale or non-kale salads- just be sure to consume within a few days as it contains fresh lime juice.) Be careful not to overdo it and cause the kale to become soggy. I massaged mine for about 4 minutes and felt that that was sufficient for me.
Sprinkle with pumpkin seeds and feel free to add some halved cherry tomatoes and/or cubed avocado. Serve!
