Raw Kale Salad, how hipster of me. Except I don’t just eat it because it’s the superfood of the moment and every hipster and his dog are Instagramming a picture of it. I’ve been eating kale for quite awhile now, because I really do love it.
The nutritional make up of this green leaf is awesome, and so good for you, so I like to eat it at least once per week for dinner. My usual style is to stir fry it with some crushed garlic cloves and dried chilli flakes, but yesterday I decided to try something different and go Raw.
My trial paid off. This raw kale salad, complete with carrots, avocado, crushed almonds and a spicy peanut dressing was delicious. It is recommended that you buy a kale such as Cavolo Nero for raw salads, however I stuck with curly kale and it tasted fine to me.
