An Herb Salad Dressing and How to Soften Kale with Lora Krulak

Written by Max Goldberg on February 8, 2013. Follow Max on Twitter: @livingmaxwell.

In this video with my friend and author of Veggies for Carnivores, Lora Krulak shows me:

1) How to make her herb salad dressing. For this recipe, she is using:

– a handful of parsley

– a handful of mint

– 1 tablespoon of lemon juice

– 1 tablespoon of orange juice

– a pinch of lemon zest and orange zest

– a generous pinch of Celtic Sea Salt

– 1 teaspoon of gluten-free, organic tamari

– 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of extra-virgin organic olive oil

Then, you put it all in the blender and serve.

2) How to soften kale. When you buy kale in the organic market, it is tough and not easily digestible. Lora shows us a very cool trick on how to quickly change the texture of kale and how to soften it. The salt that she is using is Celtic Sea Salt.

  7. Great post! I love kale and am so happy to hear of this simple way to soften it. I can now take a big bunch of kale to work and add the salt a bit before I’m ready for lunch. Fantastic! I’m going to check out Lora’s book, too.
