Support your body with the Super Hero of Greens, KALE!
A bowl of this kale salad dressed with Rosemary Shallot Dressing is a satisfying, super food-packed meal. Kale supports your body in detoxifying, helps lower cholesterol, reduces inflammation and fights oxidative stress. I consider kale the Super Hero of greens.

Rosemary Shallot Dressing Ingredients:
1 shallot, minced
2 tablespoon of minced rosemary
4 tablespoon lemon juice
1 to one clove mince garlic
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 to 2 tablespoons of tahini
mustard to taste (start with 1/4 teaspoon)
Himalayan Sea Salt and pepper to taste
Blend all the ingredients in the Vita-Mix until smooth. Keeps well in the fridge for 4 to 5 days. Note that this also works well to dress a mock potato salad made with jicama instead of cooked potatoes if you want to stick with raw foods.
Kale Salad Ingredients:
6 cups kale, well rinsed and drained, stalks removed and torn into bite size pieces
3/4 cup pecans
1 cup chopped celery
1 green onion, greens only, chopped
1 /2 cup black olives
optional: sprinkle with hemp seeds
Toss the above ingredients in the Rosemary Shallot dressing and use your clean hands to toss well, lightly massaging the kale to coat all the nooks and crannies of the wrinkled leaves. Enjoy.
