This raw salad highlights one of my FAVORITE ingredients, kale!

You will need:

 

1 small bunch of kale, wash and remove the stems

1/2 head of radicchio

2 red beets, peeled and cut very thin

2 golden beets, peeled and cut very thin

6 small carrots, cut into strips

1/2 cup toasted pecans

1/4 cup toasted pumpkin seeds

4 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons sherry vinegar

salt and pepper

  1. Place the kale in a large bowl and gently give it a little massage, this will break up the fibers and makes it easier to eat.
  2. Mix oil, vinegar, salt & pepper and set aside.
  3. Add remaining ingredients to your kale.
  4. Top with vinaigrette and toss well.

TIP:

Always massage your kale leaves and be sure to cut out the tough stems.
