Today, I wanted to share with you my amazing, incredible, powerhouse salad. For the healthiest salad foundation, I started with a dense dark leafy green… kale! From there, I tried to add in every color of the rainbow because at the end, I knew I would find a pot of gold. :)
My goal was to put as many vitamins, minerals, nutrients and enzymes into this salad as I possibly could. It is important that you use organic produce, which is free of toxic chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
One last tip that I want to pass on before I let you go, is to chop everything up in to tiny pieces. Chopping makes salads easier to eat especially those of us who find eating them a challenge.
Rather than trying to fold a huge green leaf into your mouth or spend half of your time chasing cherry tomatoes across the plate, with a well chopped salad you can scoop up layer after colorful layer of veggies in one bite fearlessly and of course with a certain degree of elegance.
I am also sharing with you a technique that helps with softening the greens so they can not only be better enjoyed but also easier to digest. And that technique is massaging the kale and chard with lemon juice, olive oil and salt. This process gently breaks down the cell walls making it easier to chew.
This salad can be enjoyed dressed in any salad dressing that suits your taste buds. It is quick easy and full of nutrition. I do hope that you enjoy this salad. Many blessings, amie sue
