Massaged Kale Salad

Kale is a liver-friendly dark green veggie that is wonderful cooked or raw. It is loaded with calcium and magnesium and folate!

1 bunch of kale, stalks removed and discarded, leaves thinly sliced

1 lemon, juiced

¼ cup extra/virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling

Kosher salt

2 teaspoons (10mL) honey

Freshly ground black pepper

1 mango, diced small (about 1 cup)

Small handful toasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds), about 2 rounded tablespoons

In a large serving bowl, add the kale, half the lemon juice, a drizzle of oil and a little kosher salt.

Massage until kale starts to soften and wilt, 2/3 minutes. Set aside while you make the dressing.

In a small bowl whisk remaining lemon juice with the honey and lots of freshly ground black pepper.

Stream in the ¼ cup of oil while whiskinguntil a dressing forms, and you like how it tastes.

Pour the dressing over the kale, add the mango and pepitas.

Toss and serve!
