You may have heard that Kale is one of the healthiest foods around. It is! (It also makes our list of Age-Erasing Foods). One cup of kale contains 36 calories, 5 grams of fiber, and 15% of the daily requirement of calcium and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), 40% of magnesium, 180% of vitamin A, 200% of vitamin C, and 1,020% of vitamin K. It is also a good source of minerals copper, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus. Impressive, huh? But what the heck do you do with it? Here’s a simple recipe you can make in minutes to bring this superfood into your diet deliciously!
2 bunches of kale, stems removed
2 oranges, sectioned
1 small red onion, halved, and then shaved thin
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
[sws_green_box box_size=”630″] Directions:
Wash kale thoroughly, then add apple cider vinegar, and cover the leaves with water.
Allow to soak for 10 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly with fresh water. Spin the leaves dry.
Return to bowl, drizzle with 1/2 cup olive oil, then sprinkle on the salt.
Use your hands to rub the olive oil and salt into all the crevices of the kale leaves.
Allow to rest 10 minutes.
You can shave your onion and section the oranges at this time. Chop the orange sections into small cubes.
Next, add the lemon juice, orange bits, and shaved onions.
Toss well and serve. Keep it cold and eat it all within 2 days.[/sws_green_box]
