- 1 bunch fresh kale
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1-1/2 lemons, fresh
- 2 teaspoons honey
- Pinch of kosher salt
- Dash of black pepper
- 1/2 cup Newman’s Own Organics dried cranberries (more or less as desired)
- 1/2 cup sesame sticks (more or less as desired)
Rinse your kale and remove it from the stems. An easy way to do this is to grab both sides of the leaves at the base near the stem and pull down until the whole leaf comes off. Pile up your kale leaves and slice them into strands to make the salad. Fresh kale by itself is rather bitter, so you will want to “massage” it until it gets softer. To do so, put a little olive oil and the juice from 1/2 a lemon in and a pinch of the kosher salt to wet the kale then do a massaging action until the kale is soft and a rich green color. Now begin the dressing:
In a bowl, whisk together the 1/4 cup of olive oil, honey, the rest of the lemon juice and pepper. When well-blended, your salad is ready!
~Toss the dressing with the kale and serve topped with dried cranberries and sesame sticks. Serve cool or room temperature and enjoy! If you tried it, please leave a comment below!
