Rub Me Raw: King Kale Salad

From Mike Ferril, Deli Manager, Organic Food Co-op News

Kale for health-
Researchers can now identify more thana 456 different flavonoids in kale. With kaempferol and quercetin headint the list, kale's flavonoids combine both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits in way that gives kale a leading dietary role with respect to aboidance of chronic inflammation and oxidative stress:


King Kale Salad
2 bunches of kale, any variety sliced thin (lacinato-black kale or dwarf)
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 bunch dandelion greens, sliced thin
6 oz. mixed been sprouts (lentils and peas)
1 cup raw sauerkraut
6 oz. sunflower sprouts
1 bunch green onions, sliced
1/2 cup olive oil (for those who do not use oil, use 3 TBs of orange juice and water)*
1/2 cup ume vinegar (or apple cider vinegar)*
3 TBsp garlic minced

Raw food recipes can be complicated concoctions or easy breeaes to make. This recipe is the latter.
Mix the oil (or the orange juice), vinegar and garlic, then set aside. Toss together the other ingredients. Pour the dressing over everything and toss to mix well. Enjoy!

* My personal variation/substitution
Add-ins: raisins and roasted sunflower seeds
