Marinated Kale Salad 2 Ways

Kale is the new BEEF…. I got a good laugh when I read this recently. Kale is a super nutritious and health boosting food!

Here are 2 delicious salads that are very simple. Marinating the kale helps it break down so it is easier to eat without cooking it.

Sweet & Sour Kale Salad with Dried Mango, Goji Berries & Sunflower Seeds

1/4 cup Bragg Liquid Amino (think gluten free soy sauce)
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup good quality olive oil
1/2 tablespoon light agave nectar
1 cup roughly chopped dried unsweetened mango
3/4 cup chopped red onion
1/3 cup goji berries
10 cups kale roughly chopped into ½- inch ribbons or torn into little pieces (middle vein and stem removed)(1 large bunch kale)
1/2 cup hemp seeds

Directions: Whisk together the Braggs, the lemon juice, the olive oil, and the agave nectar in the bowl. Add the mango, onions and goji berries and marinate while preparing the other ingredients, at least 15 minutes, but the longer the better. Add the kale and the hemp seeds. We encourage you to mix this salad by hand and really massage the kale and the vinaigrette into one another. The acid in the vinaigrette helps break down the fibrous kale and really enhances its flavor.
