Marinated Kale Salad

I’m told I make the best kale salad. It must be true, because even my nine year old daughter begs to eat it on a regular basis. Fortunately she loves to mix the marinade while I chop the kale. Kale is very nutritious, filled with minerals such as calcium and iron and marinating it is a wonderful way to enjoy it raw. The oil, salt and acid break up the fibrous leaves and make the rich minerals more absorbable and quite delicious. Ingredients: 1- 2 bunches of fresh Kale (any kind will do, shown here is Lacinato or Dino kale) 1 lemon 1 Tbs Miso ( I use chick pea rather than soy) 1/2 cup cold pressed Olive Oil 1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar 1 Tbs Juliano’s Spice Chutney (from Raw: The Uncook Book: New Vegetarian Food for Life) you can also use hot pepper sesame oil or a pinch or your favorite masala mix 2 tsp Sea Salt 1/2 cup Hijiki Seaweed 1 Ripe Red Bell Pepper (carrots are great here too)
