    Eating Seasonally:
    Massaged Kale Salad

    According to WebMD, one cup of  kale contains only 33 calories, but its packed full of calcium, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus. Because many vegetable''s nutritional benefits begin to decline after harvest, buying kale at the farmers market is a great way to ensure you''re getting the biggest nutritional boost from your greens. This recipe maximizes the natural health benefits of kale by leaving it raw, while the "massaging" gives it a delicate texture.

    Tip: Get creative! Try substituting the pumpkin seeds for slivered almonds or walnuts. Or, use peaches or raisins to lend sweetness instead of the mango.

    Ingredients:
    • 1 bunch kale, stalks removed, leaves thinly sliced
    • 1 lemon, juiced 
    • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling 
    • Kosher salt 
    • 2 teaspoons honey 
    • Freshly ground black pepper 
    • 1 mango, diced
    • Small handful of toasted pumpkin seeds
    Directions:
    In large serving bowl, add the kale, half of lemon juice, a drizzle of oil and a little kosher salt. Massage until the kale starts to soften and wilt, 2 to 3 minutes. Set aside while you make the dressing.

    In a small bowl, whisk remaining lemon juice with the honey and lots of freshly ground black pepper. Stream in the 1/4 cup of oil while whisking until a dressing forms, and you like how it tastes.

    Pour the dressing over the kale, and add the mango and pumpkin seeds. Toss and serve.
