Kale Salad with Berry Dressing
Eating green leafy vegetables is crucial. Eating some raw vegetables is also important. This salad combines both. Many restaurants are serving kale salads like this. We make it a point to eat this before dinner once a week.
One bunch of kale, rinsed thoroughly and chopped finely
One small onion, finely chopped
½ cup raw chopped walnuts, lightly toasted
Two large strawberries, crushed
Handful of raspberries or blackberries, crushed
1/3-½ cup of red wine vinegar
one tablespoon of raw, unsalted pumpkin seeds, pulverized in a spice grinder
two pitted dates, chopped
In a blender, puree the berries, vinegar, pumpkin seed powder, and dates. In a large salad bowl, place the kale, walnuts, and onions. Toss with the dressing. Add salt and pepper to taste.
