Kale Salad

It was N, my dearest former blogging partner, who turned me onto this salad a few months ago when visiting her in NYC.  I never would have thought it would be possible to eat Kale raw, or that so many delicious salad varieties could emerge from what is essentially a base of kale, tomatoes, lemon juice, olive oil and salt.

The trick is to mix the kale, olive oil, lemon juice and salt with your hands, and basically bruise the crap out of the kale.  Like, really crush that stuff.  Imagine it was that boss you hated or your ex and brutalise it.  Then add any veggies you like (I often add the tomatoes towards the end of bruising process and bash them a bit) before consuming ravenously.

The salad above had white cannelini beans, avocado and tomato, althought i’ve made it with grated carrot, soya beans and tomato with resounding success.  I’ve also added couscous or quinoa when the notion has struck me.
