Dressing
  1. ½ cup Goji berries
  2. ¼ cup rice vinegar or white wine vinegar
  3. 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  4. 1 tsp honey
  5. ¼ tsp salt
  6. dash pepper
  7. ¼ cup water
Salad
  1. 1 bunch kale
  2. 1/4 cup hemp seeds
Instructions
  1. To make the dressing, add all the above ingredients, except the kale, to the blender and blend for about 30 seconds, or just until the Goji berries have become liquefied and homogenized with the rest of the ingredients. Taste for flavor. Pour the dressing into a glass container and set aside while you prepare the kale.
  2. Prepare the kale by de-stemming the leaves. Firmly hold the bottom of the stem with your thumb and forefinger. With your other hand, pull the leafy part away from the stem. Repeat with the remaining leaves.
  3. Layer together about four leaves at a time, and slice thinly.
  4. Place all the sliced kale in a bowl and pour enough of the dressing over the kale to cover. Using your hands, massage the dressing into the kale until all the kale is well covered.
  5. Sprinkle the hemp seeds on top and to stand for at least 15 minutes before serving. Now the kale is nice and soft and yummy!
Benefits
  1. Goji berries - Are high scorers on the ORAC scale, coming in at an impressive 25,000 for a 3 ounce serving. Goji berries, also knows an wolfberries, originated in China. They are rich in antioxidants, particularly carotenoids such as beta-carotene and zeaxanthin. One of zeaxanthin's key roles is to protect the retina of the eye and decreasing the risk of age related macular degeneration - the leading cause of vision loss in people over 65.
  2. Kale - Is a highly nutritious vegetable, and compared to other vegetables, it scores the highest on the ORAC scale. Kale is a strongly anti-inflammatory food, rich in vitamin C, beta carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, and off the charts in Vitamin K - necessary for blood coagulation and normal liver functioning.
  3. For serving: Kale can be eaten raw, just sliced thinly and put in a salad, or sauteed simply with extra virgin olive oil, garlic, some broth, and salt. It only takes a couple of minutes!
  4. Taste: Kale has a mild flavor.
