Massaged Kale and Strawberry Salad

Massaged Kale and Strawberry Salad

Indeed, even on the darkest days, this delicious platter of Massaged Kale and Strawberry Salad could make you grin with a joy.

I had incredible few days with my girls. Three or four hours passed by like it was 20 minutes, but that’s always the feeling when I am with my awesome girlfriends.

Well, we like walking around the neighborhood, coffee time, breakfast, chuckling.

Honestly, that makes me happy. More often than not, we talk about what we will make for lunch, or that is my thing.

I assume in light of the fact that I generally begin that discussion.

Since I talk about things that make me happy at the moment, I often sit in my yard and think about pretty much everything.

I came to the conclusion that life is simple, but we make it so complicated sometimes, well, most of the time.

My oldest son would say just about now: “No dip, Sherlock.”

Small things do fulfill me, satisfy me, make me happy. On the other hand, to better clarify regardless of the fact that it’s cliché somehow.

Nonetheless, the fact is that I am simple person. Even those little things are acknowledged, appreciated more than you would suspect.

I am thankful for anything great that comes my way. I cry even when I am happy, but, of course, those are always tears of joy.

Massaged Kale and Strawberry Salad

A few days ago, my 9 years old returned home from school, parked his tush on the sofa, turn on his Gameboy while waiting for me to fix him quick after-school snack.

All of the sudden I heard a melody that I haven’t heard in quite a while. I was shocked that he even knows the song, let alone the lyrics.

Without interrupting, I let him sing it. “What’s up” song by 4 Non-Blondes came out in ’93, or that is the year when it became huge.

I still remember it like it was yesterday singing every day when it came on MTV.

“And I say, hey yeah yeah, hey yeah yeah… I said hey, what’s going on?” 

That made me smile, smile big…

Delightful sounds of music could fill your heart with joy, much the same as this delicious plate dependably fill my heart with joy.

Makes my day somewhat brighter, somewhat more content, a little happier even when I am feeling blue, or down.

Recipe

The taste is astounding, since kale is a solid dull green vegetable, and strawberries adjust that exceptionally well in your gut.

I included a modest amount of organic cashews for additional crunch and nutrition, seasoned with sea salt, and massaged kale in this divine and simple homemade vinaigrette.

I hope you like it as much as I did. It is probably one of my top 5 favorite salads ever.

Easy and tasty Kale and Strawberry Salad with cashews

Ingredients

  • 4-6 cups Kale chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup Strawberry sliced (249g)

Vinaigrette

  • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon Italian herb mix
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste

Additional items for dressing or salad:

  • Shredded carrot
  • Seeds
  • Lemon zest
  • A drizzle of Dijon mustard

Instructions

  1. Add chopped kale to a large mixing bowl, wash if needs to be washed.
  2. Combine all the ingredients for vinaigrette in a jar with fitted lid and shake, shake until well mixed.
  3. .Pour mixed vinagrete over the kale and massage kale for about five minutes, or until leaves are tender.
  4. Slice strawberries, and gently toss them with kale.
  5. Lastly, add cashews and enjoy.

Notes

  • The serving size of kale is 1 cup, however, after you massage the kale it goes way down like when you cook spinach. Be your own judge how much is enough for you.
  • The serving size of cashews: 16 cashews. Use as many as you like, I just wanted you to know that. 200 cal. = 22 cashews I used a handful, didn't count, to be honest.
  • If you do not like strawberries or you are allergic, use other fruit such as mandarine, oranges, other berries, pomegranate seeds, etc.
