Kale Salad #glutenfree #caseinfree

At first I was afraid, I was petrified…

But now I just love a kale salad! ¬†And my husband will eat it, too. ūüôā ¬†I just needed a little tutorial on how to prepare it.

Tear the fringe off the edges of the kale and discard (or compost) the stems.  Rinse well.  I then soak it in vinegar and water for about 15 minutes and rinse again.  Dry.  Toss with high-quality extra virgin olive oil.  Then add the goodies.

I like to add balsamic vinegar, flaxseed oil (great source of omega-3 fatty acid), Greek Kalamata olive slices (superfood suggested to help prevent breast cancer), sundried tomatoes (make sure not processed in a facility with wheat), organic celery (anti-inflammatory health benefits), walnuts, and almonds (make sure the nuts are not processed in a facility with wheat).

Hi! I'm Deana. This food blog is all about cooking wholesome real food and developing gluten free recipes for some of our favorite comfort foods. I also create weekly menus to save time and money while reducing stress and food waste. I had to start eating gluten-free in 2010 and dairy/casein-free (except for the occasional Parmesan or goat cheese) in 2014. I'm kind of a science nerd, too. In the '90s, I earned an undergrad degree in biochemistry from The University of Texas at Austin. Hook 'em! Then followed up with a PhD in biochemistry and a law degree from the University of Houston. I recently earned a certificate in genomics/sequence analysis from Johns Hopkins University, where I also took a very cool food microbiology course.
