Massaged Kale with Fennel Salad

January 28, 2019

 

This salad is delightfully nourishing and gives you all the benefits of kale, without the digestive distress. When you massage kale you break down some of the tough fibers in the cell wall that make raw kale hard to digest.  

 

When our family started eating healthy we couldn’t digest kale very well. It upset everyone's digestion and I didn’t get what all the fuss was about. If this happens to you the solution is to either steam your kale or massage it. This recipe is one of my favorites because you still get all the amazing benefits of raw kale: the enzymes, magnesium, and vitamin C .

 

Massaging nourishing oil and lemon juice into the kale also help make the nutrients more bioavailable and easier to assimilate and digest. Plus, it tastes delicious and can be paired with grilled chicken or fish for a classic healthy meal. This is by far one of my kids favorite salads- and they haven't always been salad eaters. 

 

 

Ingredients 

 

  

1 bunch kale, chopped 

1 large lemon, juiced 

1 large garlic clove, minced 

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil 

Sea salt and black pepper to taste 

1 cup shredded carrots 

1 cup chopped celery 

½ cup thinly sliced fennel 

¼ cup pine nuts 

 

 

Directions 

 

Add kale to a large mixing bowl along with lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Using clean, bare hands, massage the kale until it is wilted (about 2 to 3 minutes). 

  

Once the kale is ready, top your salad with carrots, celery, fennel, and pine nuts. No extra dressing is needed.
