Here is a great way to use up some of the kale from your share. Massaging the kale with just a dash of salt before assembling and dressing the salad will help it take on a brighter green color and soften slightly which improves the texture for fresh eating. This recipes makes enough for 2 side salads, or a light meal for one. Try varying the fruits you use, and the oil in the dressing to create new flavors. The lime juice can also be replaced with other citrus juice, or vinegar.
4-6 leaves of kale, stems removed
A handful or two of strawberries or blueberries, sliced
3-4 radishes, sliced
½ cup shredded chicken
2 tsp lime juice
1 tsp honey
1 tsp toasted sesame oil, or other oil (like walnut, avocado, or olive oil)
Salt to taste
(optional: toasted sliced almonds)
Tear kale into bite-sized pieces and add them to a salad bowl. Sprinkle with a little salt, and rub the salt into the kale for about a minute. This helps tenderize the kale.
Add the chicken, strawberries/blueberries and radishes to the kale.
In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, honey and oil with a dash of salt to make the dressing. Whisk or stir the dressing together then pour it evenly over the salad. Toss everything together and serve. Top with almonds if desired.
