Massaged Kale Salad

Thanks to Laurie Eimans for also providing this massaged kale salad!  Kale is one of the items in both the individual and family shares this week.  So if you are looking for a new fresh way to use your Kale, this is delicious!

Massaged Kale Salad

1 Bunch Kale stalks removed, leaves thinly sliced

1 lemon, juiced

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Kosher salt

2 tsp Local Honey

freshly ground pepper

1 mango, diced small(about 1 cup)

Small handful of toasted Pepitas (pumpkin seeds) about 2 rounded teaspoons


In a large serving bowl add Kale, half of the lemon juice, a drizzle of oil and a little kosher salt.  Massage until the kale starts to soften and wilt, 2-3 min.  Set aside while you make the dressing.

In a small bowl, whisk remaining lemon juice with the honey and lots of freshly ground black pepper.  Stream in the 1/4 cup olive oil while whisking until a dressing forms, and you like how it tastes.

Pour the dressing over the kale, add mango and pepitas.  Toss and serve. This keep well and is just as good the next day.
