Clean-Eating Olive Oil and Coconut Vinegar Massaged Kale Salad
As you may know, our pure and organic olive oil is extremely healthy and tastes great — because it’s from a trustworthy source. The healthy fats in olive oil also help the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients from greens.
If you’ve never used Wildly Organic’s Coconut Vinegar, you’re in for a nutritious and delicious treat! Made from the sap of the coconut tree, our coconut vinegar is naturally fermented, then bottled without pasteurization or heat, preserving all its precious nutrients.
This salad also incorporates soaked and dehydrated nuts which are easier to digest that un-soaked nuts. (Here’s why we soak and dry nuts.) Wildly Organic’s soaked and dried nuts save so much time in the kitchen!
Because kale is fairly tough, it’s important to prepare it properly in order for it to taste good. The preparation process comes in the form of a massage.
It might seem a little strange to massage a bunch of greens, but it only takes a few minutes and totally transforms these leaves from tough and slightly bitter to somewhat sweet and soft.
The massaging process also brings out the beautiful deep green color of the leaves.
To Massage Kale…
Chop the leaves into small-ish pieces (not tiny, but about the size you’d like in a salad) and place in a large bowl.
Massage the leaves with a kneading action for about 3 minutes or until soft and slightly wilted.
Don’t skip the massage! If you do, the salad will be too tough and not pleasant to chew.
