Tonight I received one of the highest honors as the chef of the house…”Babe that was one of the best dinners you have ever made!” Yes, it’s true those words were spoken after eating a massive kale salad served with a pairing of Salmon. How did I get my kale hating husband to eat several servings of this salad? Thanks to my lovely friend Dana who shared this dressing recipe with me. Kale is one of the most amazing super foods you could add to your diet. Below I’ve listed just a few of the benefits to adding Kale to your diet. Still not sure about this crunchy green stuff?! Whip up this delicious dressing and chow down!
Detoxification and aids with weight loss
Strengthens your immune system
Healthier hair, skin and nails
Helps you see clearly and aids in flexibility
Disease Fighting properties
1/2 cup Extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 garlic cloves
1/2 tsp salt
pinch of red pepper flakes
Whisk together and add 1 bunch of kale. Sit at room temperature for 10-30minutes, then add 1/2 cup of parmesan. You can also substitute part of the parmesan amount with a couple tablespoons of nutritional yeast.
This is the rub I used on our Salmon tonight. Seriously amazing!!!
It’s a combination of sea salt, brown sugar, black peppercorns, rosemary, garlic, sage, lemon juice powder and parsley.
This meal is packed with flavour and is the perfect way to start your week off!
