I love kale, but I really haven't been able to get with the whole raw kale salad craze. I will eat steamed kale or baked kale chips all day and night, but raw kale is just too chewy for me! I decided to do a little research to see if I could come up with something I liked...I came up with this simple salad recipe, and it turned out so well I just had to share. The citrus breaks down the kale a bit, so it's not as tough, and the feta adds a little creaminess. Yum!
Here's what you will need:
-Around half a bag/bunch of kale
-3 tablespoons olive oil
-Salt & Pepper
Start by tearing up your kale. Get rid of any thicker stalks. Put your kale in a large bowl and squeeze the juice of one lemon over the kale (watch out for seeds!). Next, add your olive oil. Cut open the grapefruit and use a spoon to take out the meat and add it to the salad (do it over the salad so all the juice goes in). Once you've removed all of the meat, squeeze the rest of the grapefruit juice over the kale. Season the salad to taste with a bit of salt and pepper and mix well. Let the salad sit for a bit. The longer you let it sit, the softer the kale will get. When you're ready to serve the salad, sprinkle on some almond slices and feta. Enjoy!
