Kale Salad with Chipotle Dressing
From brownies to a salad :-). I know, right?
This salad comes courtesy of Russell James. If you sign up for his newsletter, you will get five free recipes. This is one of them.
2 heads kale
2 teaspoons salt
2 cups baby tomatoes
1 cup hulled hemp seeds
1 chipotle pepper
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons agave
2 teaspoons lemon juice
Remove the stems and then wash and cut the kale into small pieces. Place into a bowl, add the salt and massage it into the kale until it wilts and takes on a cooked texture.
Add the tomatoes and hemp seeds. Mix by hand.
Blend the dressing ingredients in a blender. Pour into bowl, and mix by hand.
Okay, I didn't have hemp seeds. I avoid them since the last time I had them, they gave me horrible stomach cramps. I added a little bit of nutritional yeast and more salt to this recipe, once I had mixed everything in. I enjoyed it, and so did my husband, and I would make it again. Russell also has a bread recipe I am aching to try. But I need to get some buckwheat and sprout it. Look for the bread sometime next week!
Up next: A plethora of juices!
