Kale Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

While kale is incredibly low in calories, it is one of the most nutrient-dense foods, containing powerful antioxidants, such as beta-carotene and vitamin C.


5 Bunches black Tuscan kale
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
¾ cup dried (or fresh) blueberries
2 cups Lemon Vinaigrette (below)
Salt and pepper


Clean stem off kale and chop in to ½ in strips.

Toss cleaned and chopped kale with ½ cup of lemon vinaigrette. Lightly massage the dressing into the kale. This should be done at least 8 hours before you serve kale; overnight is preferred.

Right before service place kale, red pepper flakes, blueberries and ½ cup of the lemon vinaigrette. Toss all together; add more vinaigrette if desired.  Yields 10 portions.

Lemon Vinaigrette

½ cup Fresh lemon Juice
¼ cup honey
