Kale Salad

I'm so excited about how healthy kale is. Now here's a way to enjoy it raw to get the most out of its goodness.

Fill a 2-quart salad bowl with:
Kale chopped into bite-sized pieces.

Combine the following for dressing and pour over salad:
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. Braggs
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder

Massage the dressing into the kale with your hands. This action tenderizes the leaves.

Then add:
4 radishes, sliced
4 green onions, sliced
1/4 cup black olives, sliced
1/4 cup toasted sunflower seeds
1 tomato, diced

Serve immediately. If you want to make it ahead, massage the dressing into the kale ahead of time and add the toppings just before serving.
