Demo Kale Salad w/ HBJ's Creamy Garlic Dressing
This salad, hands down, sells Health By Juli's Creamy Garlic dressing and turn kale haters into kale LOVERS!!! I believe it's due to the fact that the acid in the organic apple cider vinegar, a main ingredient in the dressing, breaks down the toughness in the kale. The creaminess in this flavor, comes from nutritional yeast, which is also used on top of the kale, as a condiment, after the dressing is on. I tell customers that one key to this salad is paper thin red onion, which means you need a sharp knife. The other key is contrasting flavors. You get the savory flavor from the garlic and the sweetness from the dried fruit.
1 large head kale, the thick middle steam removed, washed, dried and shredded
1/4th red onion sliced thin and cut into 1 inch pieces
1/4 - 1/2 cup raisins, cherries or cranberries in the summer I used fresh sliced strawberries or blueberries
1/4th cup nutritional yeast
1/2 cup Health By Juli Creamy Garlic Dressing
pink sea salt to taste
Put kale and onions in a big bowl and add dressing, toss. Then add nutritional yeast, salt and toss again.
Taste. Top with dried fruit. Put in the refrigerator and chill. Can be eaten immediately hours later since the kale is so sturdy.
Serves 4-6 as a side salad
Optional: Top with Chicken, Fish or Veggie Burger to make into a main course for 4
