A Super Vegetable Named Kale + Salad Recipe
Whether it’s green or purple, smooth or curly, kale has earned its title as “the queen of greens” and a “nutritional powerhouse.”
Kale is one of the most nutrient-rich foods out there; one cup of kale provides more than 200% of the recommended daily intake (RDI) of vitamin A and more than 100% of the RDI of vitamin C. It’s also high in vitamin K and rich in iron, as well as a great source of antioxidants that are known to reduce inflammation and counter oxidative stress.
A lot of people add kale to their smoothies or juices in order to boost their nutritional value. You can also make kale chips by drizzling some olive oil on your kale, adding some sea salt, and then baking them in an oven until dry (Oh She Glows has some great tips on how to make yummy baked kale chips every time).
Personally, I love a good kale salad. The problem with many kale salads is that they can be too fibrous and taste bitter. Fortunately for you, I’ve perfected a recipe that has constantly been a hit with all of my personal chef clients, even those who didn’t think that they liked kale salad! The secret is to massage your dressing through the kale as this helps to get rid of the bitterness.
Get ready to prepare a kale salad that is sure to be a winner with all its sweet flavors!
