Jason’s Simple Citrus Kale Salad

Wondering what to do with this weeks CSA share? Try this simple and delicious refreshing salad!


-1 bunch kale

-1 bunch radishes

-3 carrots

-2 white beets

-2 tomatillos

-juice of 1 lime

-EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)

-pinch salt


I personally like my root veggies with the skin still on them to enjoy all the vitamins they have to offer, however, with the fine black dirt on beets is hard to remove so I recommend peeling your beets. So first things first remove stems from veggies, I like to give my veggies a quick rinse.


Peel your beets. Thinly chop tomatillos and thinly slice beets, radishes, carrots; set aside.


Chop kale to desired sized pieces, throw in salad bowl.


Drizzle about 2-3 tablespoons of EVOO over your kale.


Massage kale by rubbing/ sliding through your hands for 2-3 minutes. Massaging your food may sound funny but by doing this you get to enjoy the silky sweeter side of kale. For the entire breakdown of how kale changes check out this link from the LA Times.

Once kale is massaged, it will appear darker and if you try it, less fibrous and sweeter. Toss in your root veggies, tomatillos and a pinch of salt, lime juice, and give it a good toss.


You are now ready to serve and enjoy!
