My all time favorite leaf! Kale scores a 1,000 on the A.N.D.I. scale, tastes delicious and is one of the most versatile veggies to prepare.
  • 1 bunch raw organic kale
  • ½ small lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves fresh garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons natural (nothing added) dried cranberries (or raisins)
  • 2 tablespoons raw chopped walnuts (pictured with pignoli)
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  1. Rip the stems apart from the leaves of each piece of kale, then tear into small pieces.
  2. Fill sink with warm water and massage kale for five minutes, continuing to rip into even smaller pieces.
  3. Drain and place in large, flat bowl.
  4. Add lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and mix well with hands.
  5. Scatter cranberries on top and refrigerate, covered for several hours, stirring occasionally.
  6. Remove from refrigerator 10 - 15 minutes before serving to allow to rise to room temperature.
