kale salad

 

Salads don’t need to be boring, try mixing it up with a kale salad! Add in fresh seasonal organic produce, some crunchy textures and a drizzle of tangy lime dressing.

Kale is a particularly rich source of bioactive compounds including phelolic antioxidants, flavonoids, glucosinolates, dietary fibre, minerals; Iron (non-heme), zinc, magnesium, manganese and calcium and vitamins C and pro-vitamin A. Kale has been reported to exhibit the highest antioxidant/nutrient capacity of that in the brassica family.

Here’s a tip to get the most from your kale! Massaging the kale avoids all forms of heat treating, yet tenderises the kale oh so perfectly. Otherwise, cooking green kale can lose up to 40% of glucosinolates  & Vitamin C is also extremely sensitive to heat treatment.
