Simple Kale slaw

I realized the other day that is has been far too long since I first posted anything on this site. I am now done teaching until January 2012, when I will hopefully be back at Camosun for round 2. It has been pretty tough juggling my first semester of college teaching with my normal work load, and I am still catching up on a few things. I will post some reflections on teaching on the PT Performance Training blog shortly, if you are interested... For those of you who have emailed me regarding the ambassador program, expect an email with information shortly! Despite the fact that things have been a bit crazy around here in the last few months (OK, a bit is certainly an understatement... haha), the work on the book continued and I still developed and tried new recipes. After all, a girl has got to eat properly, right? Here is one of those recipes. Quick, easy and delicious!


Kale Slaw

Ingredients

  • ~2 cups kale, finely sliced - I used 1 cup purple kale and 1 cup green curly kale. There are so many different kind of kale out there and I have yet to find one that I didn't like!  Just use the kind you like best.
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 1 tbsp dulse flakes

Instructions

  1. For the dressing, mix 2 tbsp plain Greek yogurt (BTW - 0% plain yogurt isn't Greek yogurt, regardless of what the label might say...) with 1 tsp macadamia nut oil (or EVOO), juice and zest of 1/2 lemon.
  2. Mix kale, carrots and dulse flakes. Toss in the dressing and your done. Yes, its that easy!
  3. If you want the kale to be a bit softer, instead of adding the juice of 1/2 lemon to the dressing, 'massage' it into the kale and let it sit for a few minuted before adding the rest of the ingredients and the dressing.
