Kale and Strawberry Sweet Balsamic Salad

Beautiful on the plate and equally as delicious to taste; this elegant salad makes the most of one of our favourite “super foods”, kale and a seasonal delight, sweet strawberries.

Kale provides us with hard to find vitamin K which directly helps the liver in it’s detoxification process and also aids blood clotting after injury. Vitamin A, a powerful anti-ageing and anti-oxidant vitamin, and a good dose of vitamin C which when coupled with the strawberries in this salad make it a powerful immunity booster.

Balsamic vinegar brings out the fruity flavour of seasonal strawberries and the additional honey in the dressing plays up the sweetness of the berry and complements the strong flavour of the kale.

As strawberries appear with regularity on the Dirty Dozen list of foods, be sure to buy organic for this salad. As with all kale salads the secret is in the massaging of the leaves!

Great health has never tasted so good!
