Raw Kale Salad

I love kale in vegetable soup or simply sauteed - but I think my very favorite way (and the healthiest by far) is raw kale salad. "What?" you say? Really! It is delicious and zings you up!

So, here is how you make it. Wash the kale, use a knife to cut out the center rib, sorta roll up the kale leaves and cut into small strips. For the dressing, just smash up some garlic (this depends on your taste - I add alot, especially in this season of sickness), add 1 part lemon juice and 3 parts olive oil. Mix it up and let it set just a bit. That is it! It stays good overnight, so you can even make it for the following day's lunch.  You will enjoy the flavor and getting a great dose of green!
