I had some friends over for lunch the other day to introduce them to the raw foods lifestyle. This is a photo featuring a bowl of the Curried Apple-Cucumber-Kale-Cranberry Salad which I served with Sunflower Seed Pate, Onion Crisps and a really refreshing Green Tea with Apricots, sweetened with stevia.
Have to admit that I get such a kick out of serving raw foods to people who have never tried them before as the response is always favorable and rather astounded by the gourmet and sophisticated taste sensations.
Especially fun is finding fabulous ways to serve kale, a green that is probably one the most nutritious plants in the world, but not one that most people are accustomed to eating. After all, when you are served a plate of food at a restaurant garnished with some kale, how often have you actually munched down on that leafy green?
For this recipe, leaving the dressing for about 20-30 minutes on the salad and even massaging into the kale will actually soften the texture and make the kale much more delectable.
