Mediterranean Kale Salad
- small bunches kale, stems removed
- 2 TBS extra virgin olive oil
- 2 TBS lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 cup pine nuts
- 1/4 golden raisins (soaked 10 minutes, drained and rinsed)
- fresh ground pepper, to taste
Stack two kale leaves with the stems facing you. Fold in half lengthwise and roll tightly, like a cigar. Slice crosswise into thin strips. Repeat with the remaining kale leaves. Chop the strips crosswise a few times, so they aren’t too long.
Place the kale in a mixing bowl along with the olive oil, lemon juice and salt. Toss well with your hands, working the dressing into the greens. Add the pine nuts and raisins and toss gently. Season to taste with black pepper. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Mediterranean Kale Salad will keep for three days Bring to room temperature before serving.
