It’s been a while since I have had one of my favorite all time greens – kale! So I thought I’d put together a nice, but simple, refreshing and energizing salad consisting of lots of kale. I found these delicious organic Ginger Gold apples and thought they would go great with the kale – which they did. Try this recipe out, I think you will enjoy it.
Kale with Ginger Gold Apples Salad.
10 leaves (more or less) organic Dinosaur (Lacinato Blue) kale (chopped)
1 handful mixed organic baby herb lettuce
1 small handful organic baby spinach
1 organic Ginger Gold Apple (cored and seeded)
1/2 cup raw organic Himalayan Golden raisins
1 cup chopped pecans
pinch sea salt
drizzle raw agave nectar or raw honey
several drizzles balsamic vinegar
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl except for salt, agave nectar and vinegar, toss well. Add remaining ingredients and toss again – it’s ready to serve. This salad is filling, flavorful, and energizing. Enjoy!

I love my super food greens! As you know kale is a big part of my diet – so are collard greens. Well, lately I have discovered another super green that I can’t be without. Introducing Swiss Chard! That’s right, Swiss Chard!
Swiss Chard is probably one of the most vitamin and mineral rich super greens you can eat! I can’t even begin to tell you how healthy chard is! You can read more about it here.
Well, if you want a simple, but delicious way to consumer more chard, try my salad. You only need a few ingredients, and it is super yummo! Plus super energizing too! Try it for yourself.
1 large bunch (about 6-8 leaves) fresh white Swiss Chard
1-2 handfuls fresh herb salad mix
1 handful fresh sprouts or micro herbs
2 large apples (mixed variety)
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup raw pecan pieces
drizzle hemp oil
drizzle balsamic vinegar
Rinse chard leaves, and trim off ends. Chop leaves and add to a large bowl. Core and seed apples. Cut into small slices and add to bowl. Add herb lettuce, micro herbs, raisins and pecans. Toss well. Drizzle hemp oil and balsamic vinegar, toss again until well combine. Ready to serve. Makes 2-4 servings depending upon how much you like to eat! =)

Although this is a simple kale salad, I still wanted to include it since I used specific ingredients to make it have the flavor that it did. Ejoy!
4-5 leave Dinosaur Kale (chopped in strips)
4-5 leaves Romaine lettuce (chopped in strips)
3 small Roma tomatoes (chopped in quarters)
1/2 cup dried cranberries
3T hemp seed
drizzle Bragg’s Sesame Ginger Dressing
dash sea salt
Combine all ingredients and toss well. Serve with raw crackers or raw mana bread and coconut butter to spread.
