A refreshing, crunchy raw kale salad topped with seeds and full of fruit and veggies.
  • 1 large bunch of kale (5-6 large stems), washed well and patted dry
  • 2 medium apples, diced
  • 1 large cucumber, quartered lengthwise and thinly sliced
  • 1 medium golden beet, peeled, halved and very thinly sliced
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds (raw or toasted)
  • Juice of 1 large lemon
  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons fresh dill (if using dried, use ½ teaspoon)
  1. Remove the fibrous kale stems. Stack the leaves and cut into very thin ribbons crosswise. Place in a large bowl and add the lemon juice and olive oil. With your hands, massage, squeeze and rub the kale until it wilts. Add the remaining ingredients. Season well with salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired.
