Savoy Sweet and Sour
While I have never seen kale here in Germany, savoy is very common all year round, but especially now that it’s fall. If you can’t get savoy, use kale or any other dark green leaf.
This salad turned out so good that even my sweet (and yes, picky) little girls ate it all up and almost licked their plates clean. :)
(I don’t have a picture of the salad, I’ll load one up next time. Which will be soon. :) )
1 head savoy
10 dried tomatoes
1 handful sunflower seeds
2 teaspoon Salt
3 tablespoon oil from dried tomatoes (or olive oil)
2 tablespoon raw honey (or agave or some soft dates)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Cut up the savoy into bite size pieces and put them in a big salad bowl.
Add the salt and roll up your sleeves! It’s time to give the savoy a good massage. Work the salt into the savoy with your hands until the leaves get soft and a little moist. They should now look almost as if cooked. That takes a little time and somw sweat, but it’s well worth the effort!
Cut dried tomatoes into little pieces and add to the savoy.
Add sunflower seeds and mix up the salad. I used unsoaked sunflower seeds, but I think you could also use soaked or sprouted seeds.
Now put the avocados, oil, honey and lemon juice into your food processor or blender and mix until smooth. You can also do this easily without machines, it doesn’t matter if the avos remain a little chunky.
Taste the dressing if it needs more lemon, I prefer less acidity in my salads than most others!
Pour the dressing over the savoy and mix thoroughly.
