Raw Kale recipes for my Raw Foodies

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

I discovered Raw Kale Salads last year and I have been eating them ever since. I couldn't imagine eating a salad made from raw kale because it is so tough. When prepared correctly the kale is nice and tender after it marinates in fresh lemon juice. I was shocked and then became hooked.

I will make a big batch up and it lasts for the week. I massage mine up with fresh lemon juice and place the kale in an airtight container. Just grab a handful and add whatever add-ins I want for that meal. My favorite add-ins are diced apples, walnuts, and cranberries but I also make other combinations.

    I have never cared for Kale. I find it bitter. I think that I'll give it a try to see what I think now that I am older & my tastes have changed. Thanks for the recipes. Love you

    I've been working on adding more greens to my diet, and I've discovered that kale and pineapple make a wonderful smoothie! (I use dairy in my smoothies since I'm allergic to bananas... the yogurt keeps a creamy consistency.) Though not raw, I've found that I really enjoy kale chips too.

    My teeth are like piano keys having just finished my supper - second night in a row eating raw kale salad. Thank you so much for sharing the raw kale recipes. I look forward to perusing them.

Today the collard greens at the market were spectacular: the leaves were giant, at least two feet long. I think I'll be feasting on them for awhile. I've always lightly steamed them then sautéed them, often with fresh ginger, or had them raw in blended drinks. Your delicious looking recipes have inspired me to research and break out of my collard habits! Thank you.
