|Aarti's Massaged Kale Salad|
Although this recipe called for mangos, I also made a dish without the mangos and added a little Parmesan cheese. This turned out wonderful also and reminded me of the kale from True Food in Phoenix. Wonderful topped over their egg-white omelet. I highly recommend it.
Thanks again to Aarti Sequeira for this massaged kale recipe. With simple ingredients...mango, kale, pumpkin seeds, lemon, olive oil...it's a cinch to make. The only thing I did differently was to use a little less olive oil and add a little garlic powder to the dressing. Other than that, do what she says, make sure to massage the kale for at least 1.5 minutes to really soften it up and there you have it. While you're massaging the kale, or basically squeezing it over and over, you'll lose volume in the kale and that's expected.
For my second try, I just skipped the mango and sprinkled with a little Parmesan before eating. Either way, this is tremendous and fantastic!
Oh, and make sure you don't chop the stems of the kale. They're too hard and fiberous...but they do make an excellent dog bone... my boys love them!
