Simple Kale Salad

Happy Monday to you! How about a nice refreshing kale salad to start off your busy week with some delicious nutrition? :)

Here's what you'll need!

4 cups curly kale, de-stemmed & torn into small pieces
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (w/ live cultures
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon unpasteurized honey
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (or pecans), optional
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
pepper, to taste
chopped (super crispy) organic apple, optional 


Wash kale, de-stemmed and tear into desired bite size pieces. (You can save all the 'un-curly' kale for a smoothie :)

In as small mason jar, add together the apple cider vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, honey, Dijon mustard and salt. Vigorously shake until thoroughly mixed. Pour over chopped kale and toss together. Set in refrigerator and marinate for at least 30 minutes. 

Just before serving toss in chopped apple and walnuts.


There you have it! A seriously yummy way to get in your greens without forcing yourself!!! Even my dad loved it which is saying something . . . :p
