Simple Kale Salad
What You'll Need
6 large kale leaves
½ onion, finely chopped
1 ½ cups cooked garbanzo bean
1 large tomato, diced
1 large green pepper, diced
½ cup toasted pine nuts (optional)
6 Tbsp seasoned rice vinegar
2 Tbsp water
1 tsp agave nectar
2 heaping Tbsp nutritional yeast
½ tsp salt, to taste (optional)
How to Make It
1 Begin by removing the leafy part of the kale from the stalk and chopping into tiny pieces. Massage the kale between your hands until soft and slightly wilted.
2 Add the remaining salad ingredients.
3 In a separate bowl, mix together the dressing ingredients. Pour over the salad and serve.
Make sure to massage the kale. This helps transform it from being bitter and tough to tender and sweet.
