Raw Kale Salad with Spicy Lime Dressing

This recipe is inspired by Doug McNish and his new book Raw, Quick & Delicious!

The key to enjoying a salad is all in the dressing.  This is one way I have never got bored of eating salads on a high raw foods diet for the past 2 years.  I’ve experimented with various dressings, dips and ingredients in my blender to make tasty dressings.

Another tip for making good salads is the various textures.  I like having a variety of textures in my mouth when I eat a salad.

Enjoy this one!  Tell me what you think by leaving a comment below.

Prepare your kale first by sprinkling about 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil a sprinkle of apple cider vinegar and give the kale a massage with your bare hands.  Think loving thoughts as you do this!

Chop your ingredients for the top of your salad: I like cucumbers, yellow and red peppers, hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, cabbage or broccoli too!

Make the dressing: (place all in your blender)
