  photo above:  My recent  morning "haul" from bountiful upcountry Maui where farms and farmers' market dot the countryside. Hmm - Kale salad, anyone? 

For a GLOBAL view of kale ;) check out The Kale Project, "a movement to bringing the healthiest green vegetable to Paris", one of my favorite sites for those who are kale- obsessed or who just love Paris!

Recipe for Maui Coffee Gal's

Kale Salad w/Raisins & Pumpkin Seeds


1 large bunch of just-picked garden-fresh Kale
1/2 c. raisins
1/3 c. roasted & lightly salted pumpkin seeds
1)  De-stem your kale if you prefer (would recommend for new raw kale eaters) 
2)  Chop kale in fairly small, bite-size pieces.
3)  Add organic raisins, 1/3 c. of the dressing, and toss.   Add roasted pumpkin seeds at last minute on top to keep crunchy. 
4)  Enjoy!

 Kale Salad DRESSING 

1/2 c. + 2 T. extra virgin olive oil
1/4 c. combining these (3) ingredients to your preferred taste: Bragg's Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, balsamic vinegar, and lemon juice
Splash of maple syrup - start with 2 t. - to taste
1/2 t. dijon
1 small clove garlic
salt & pepper to taste
Whip in blender until light & creamy in texture.  
SAVE remaining dressing in refrigerator for salad or to dip veggies.
