Health gurus (including myself) post too many kale salad recipes. But this one is special, I swear! 😉
I got inspired by a Kale Caesar Salad the chefs make for the players at Wrigley. I create my own version of it. And it is addictive. Seriously.
5-Ingredient Seriously Addictive Kale Salad
dinosaur kale* + EVOO + minced garlic + sunflower seed dust** + lemon
1. Put 2 bunches of thinly-chopped dinosaur kale leaves in a large bowl.
2. Heat 2T extra virgin olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and stir in 1 minced garlic clove + 2T ground sunflower seed dust. Keep over heat for 1 minute.
3. Pour the hot oil over kale, squeeze a little fresh lemon, and toss.
Yup, that’s it. Now you have Seriously Addictive Kale Salad! Eat it right away or leftovers are great for days in the fridge. I ate it w/ a piece of salmon yesterday and was in heaven. 👼
*Dinosaur kale is a MUST…it’s more tender than curly kale.
**Wrigley chefs use breadcrumbs, but my version tastes great w/ the superfood upgrade of 🌻 sunflower seed dust. How To: Simply pulse toasted/salted sunflower seeds in a blender. Magical “dust” with serious umami, a.k.a. meaty flavor.
