Ingredients FOR THE SALAD
3-4 cups kale, de-stemmed and chopped (I used lacinto kale)
juice from 1 large lemon (or 2 small lemons)
1/4 English cucumber, about 5 slices, chopped in half
10-12 grape tomatoes, cut in half
1/8 red onion, sliced
small handful olives, chopped in half (I used green)
1/2 avocado, sliced
1/4 cup chickpeas (RG tip: use soaked and sprouted chickpeas for a 100% raw version)
Dollop of hummus (about 2 tablespoons) (RG tip: use zucchini or sprouted chickpea hummus for a 100% raw version)
Optional add-ins: hemp hearts, sunflower seeds
FOR THE DRESSING
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
juice from 1 lemon
1 heaping tablespoon spicy dijon mustard
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon agave nectar
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
sea salt and pepper to taste
Directions 1. After removing stems from kale, place in a medium-sized bowl and pour lemon juice from 1 lemon over kale. Mix lemon juice around to make sure all leaves are covered and set aside for about 5 minutes while you prepare the other ingredients. Doing this softens the kale.
2. For the dressing, whisk together all ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
3. After all other veggies are chopped, you can start assembling the salad. In a salad bowl, add kale and top with cucumber, grape tomatoes, red onion, olives, avocado, chickpeas and hummus. Optional add-ins are hemp hearts and/or sunflower seeds!
4. Pour dressing over salad and enjoy.
