Sure, the last thing you want to eat right now is salad. Scratch that – the last thing you want to eat right now is kale salad. But, bikini season is right around the corner, so you might as well try to enjoy eating healthy… *sigh.*
And we promise, this Massaged Mango-Kale Salad won’t be THAT bad. In fact, we think it’s pretty damn good. And hey, if you don’t like it, you’ll probably still get a good Instagram post out of it, and that’s what really matters, right?
Mango and Kale Salad
- Prep Time:15 minutes
- Cook Time:None
- Total Time:15 minutes
- 1 bunch of kale (any type)
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (plus extra for drizzling)
- 2 teaspoon honey
- 1 mango, diced
- 1 small handful of pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
- Kosher salt (to taste)
- Ground black pepper (to taste)
Remove the stalks from the kale and thinly slice the leaves.
Add kale, half of the lemon juice, a drizzle of olive oil, and a little Kosher salt to a large serving bowl. Massage until the kale starts to soften (around 2-3 minutes).
Prepare the dressing by whisking the remaining lemon juice with honey and ground black pepper, then gradually stirring in 1/4 cup of olive oil.
Pour dressing over kale, then add diced mango and pepitas. Mix and serve.
