Best Kale Salad Recipe

½ cup chopped roasted carrots, from 3/4 cup raw carrots 1/3 to ½ cup water ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil 2 tablespoons rice vinegar 2 teaspoons minced ginger ¼ teaspoon sea salt Salad 1 batch Roasted Chickpeas 1 bunch curly kale, stems removed, leaves torn into bite-sized pieces 1 teaspoon lemon juice ½ teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

Ingredients

In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, salt, and black pepper to make the dressing.

1

Place the sliced kale in a large salad bowl.

2

Pour the dressing over the kale leaves and use your hands to massage the dressing into the kale for about 2-3 minutes. This helps to soften the kale and infuse it with flavor.

3

Let the kale sit for about 10 minutes to marinate.

4

Add the grated Parmesan cheese, toasted pine nuts, and dried cranberries (or raisins) to the kale and toss everything together until well combined.

5

Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.

6

If desired, garnish the salad with avocado slices or cherry tomatoes before serving.
