Easy Kale Salad

Did you know that Kale is a widely accepted superfood?!! High in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin, and rich in calcium. Kale is also a source of indole-3-carbinol, a chemical which boosts DNA repair in cells and appears to block the growth of cancer cells. On the ANDI scale (Aggregate Nutrient Density Index), of 1-1,000 in which foods are rated for their nutrient density, Kale scores at the full 1,000!!!!

Kale Salad

1 Bunch Kale, chopped small

1/4 cup craisins, dried cranberries or dried cherries

1/4 cup sliced almonds or cashew pieces

1 Tbls. extra virgin olive oil

2 Tbls. sweet white balsamic vinegar (rice vinegar plus some sweetener of choice, etc..)

salt and pepper to taste

 

Mix all ingredients well and serve or store for up to a week in the refrigerator. (I like to shake my salads in a large tupperware with a tight-fitting lid; for even coating and extra fun in the kitchen 🙂 )
