Refreshing Kale Salad with Coconut Oil Dressing


This is a salad I tried out the other day and it worked out awesome the ingredients needed are as follows:

2 bunches of kale
3 cups of spinach
6 Roma tomatoes
1 cucumber diced
1/2 red onion or green onion "optional"
1 cup reg. white mushrooms
1 bunch Cilantro use half.

Dressing:
1Tblsp/15ml Coconut oil
1Tblsp/15ml Olive Oil
2tsp/10ml flax seed oil
Juice of one lime approx, 50ml 
1tsp/5ml Black Pepper
1tsp/5ml Sea Salt

Preparation:

Chop the Kale into slices and then place in bowl put dressing on top and massage the oil into the kale the oil and citrus really helps to break down the fibers and soften the coarseness of the kale so it is easier to consume and not so chewy allow the kale to sit while you prepare the rest of the items for the salad.

Remember many of the items I use are just what I had lying around or what I was craving like any salad put whatever you like eating in it.  I wish at the time I was making this I had some mango, or pineapple kicking around or some other tasty tropical fruit that pairs well with coconut mmmmm just thought of papaya.  With kale being coarse it will not wilt fast like other green leafy veggies so you have some time to get everything together.
