When I feel like I am coming down with something, this is my go-to cure-all. I eat the entire bowl in 2 different sittings on day 1 of feeling under the weather. It ALWAYS helps me.
About 16 cups fresh kale, stemmed and torn into bite-sized pieces or chopped as desired
1 entire head of garlic cloves peeled and freshly chopped
1 3-inch piece of fresh ginger root, finely chopped or grated
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
Juice of 1 lemon
1.5 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
2 tsp honey
12 oz jar of roasted red bell peppers
Put the kale into a large salad bowl. Whisk all of the dressing ingredients (everything but the roasted red peppers) together in a small bowl. Pour the dressing over the kale and then take both of your “clean hands” and firmly massage the kale about 2 minutes or until the leaves begin to soften. Add the roasted red peppers and toss to mix them evenly. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds if desired.
