Tips

Please use organic vegetables whenever possible. If you can't. Pre-soak all your vegetables in a sink full of cold water and vinegar (3 parts water to one part vinegar) This ensures that most of those nasty pesticides are washed away.


Directions

1. Pre-wash Kale, chard and spinach in a vinegar wash for minimum of 15 min, preferably 20 min.
2. Rinse well.
3. Remove spines from Kale and Red Chard.
4. Tear Kale and Red chard into bite sized pieces
5. Spin dry in a salad spinner or shake off excess water and pat dry
6. While salad mix is drying, remove garlic husks and mince garlic roughly.
7. Cut Red onion in rings with a mandolin or if you are talented with a sharp knife.
8. Remove skin and pit from avocado and cube.
9. Do not cut do anything with the orange yet. In a large bowl transfer the dried salad mix and sprinkle a pinch of salt over it. Rub and massage the salad mix to soften and tenderize the kale and Swiss Chard.
10. Add Garlic, onion and avocado.
11. Toast Walnuts and add to salad (optional)
12. Peel and cube oranges (You do this near the end because oranges start to lose their nutrition and vitamins as soon as they are exposed to light)
13. Toss with Ginger Seasame Vinegarette and ENJOY!
