KALE, APPLES & KOHLRABI SALAD
Being creative with vegetables is a powerful way to maintain a healthy weight, bring tons of vitamins and nutrients to your body and enjoy what you eat. This kale salad is unique, original and super fresh. I love it with a fish curry, a piece of grilled beef (grass fed please), or on its own. Choose organic ingredients preferably so you can benefit from the vitamins and minerals of your raw vegetables without any pesticides!
For the salad
2 cups shredded kale
1 cup thinly sliced apples
1 cup thinly sliced kohlrabi
1 cup thinly sliced fennel
1 cup rocket leaves
1 handful of dill
1 tbsp dried cranberries (or pomegranate)
1 handful hazelnuts (optional)
For the dressing
2 tbsp cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
1-2 lime juices
Remove the stems of the kale and chop the leaves thinly and place in a salad bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and massage the leaves to soften them up (approx. 3 minutes).
With a mandoline, slice thinly the kohlrabi, fennel, apple and add to the bowl and add the rest of the ingredients.
Drizzle with oil and squeeze the juice of one or two limes on top depending on your taste buds. Season with salt and black pepper. Mix together and serve. Enjoy!
