Last-Minute Kale Salad

Last-Minute Kale Salad - The Clean Gourmet
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!
