Recipe of the Week - Kale Salad

I'll admit it. When my mother told me about this recipe a few years ago, I dismissed it as a "she's going through a health kick" kind of a thing. I mean really. Raw kale? Isn't that the stuff they use as a garnish beside real food? Then I tried it. Not only is it good, but it has great immune boosting ingredients. There's a reason that they say, "Don't knock it 'til you try it!"  


Kale Salad

2 bunches of kale - Cut off end of stems and chop fine.  Set aside.

Blend the following ingredients until smooth (using blender or food processor): 5 cloves of garlic 1 1/2 Tablespoons curry 1/2 Tablespoon cumin 3/4 cup oilve oil 1/4 cup lemon juice 4 dates 1 Tablespoon sea salt (or table salt :)
