Merry Christmas guys! Hope you had a great one! You guys know how much I love salads. They are my specialty. There is nothing easier than making a salad (at least for me). I love working with seasonal produce. As I’ve told you before – I need to have a salad at least once a day. This is why I created this seasonal Kale Persimmon Salad,

A bowl of chopped kale to be massaged and made tender for a kale persimmon salad, great for winter!


Today’s salad is made with hearty kale and sweet persimmons. I’ve talked about persimmons more in this post.

They are perfect for desserts and jams, but I loved their texture in this salad, too.

I was not a huge fan of kale salad a while back, but now when I’ve found the best way to prepare it, it has turned into my favorite green vegetable.

I added toasted puffed millet cereal to the salad for extra protein. It is excellent for cold cereal, but when toasted it adds a great texture to salads. It is an all natural, whole grain cereal with no added salt, sugar or artificial ingredients. With its complete protein and fat-free composition it is great for clean recipes like this one. I’ve also used it in protein bars and it works great.

The dressing here is very simple. I prefer to massage the kale with some salt, before I assemble the salad. Then I don’t add salt to the dressing. Instead, you can add the salt to the dressing and then pour it over the kale and massage it. Either way it fine. There is lime juice, olive oil, black pepper and a pinch of each cayenne pepper and ground cumin.
