The Lido restaurant, at the Standard Hotel in South Beach, is one of my favorite places – it is right on the water and they serve super healthy food. During one of their cooking classes I learn how to make their super tasty kale salad.

It is super-fast to prepare and tasty! So you must try this at home.

Raw Kale Salad Recipe -

4 c. Raw Kale 3 Tbs. Toasted Pine Nuts
3 Tbs. Golden Raisins
½ c. Shredded Carrots
3oz. Crumbled Goat Cheese
 ¼ c. Olive Oil
1/8 c. Apple Cider Vinegar
Sea Salt and Cracked Black Pepper to taste

In a large bowl start by adding kale and shredded carrots along with olive oil and vinegar. Add 3 good pinches of fine sea salt and a few cracks of black pepper and proceed to work the dressing with your hands. You want the kale to become soft and deep green. Carrots will start to lightly wilt. Then add toasted pine nuts, raisins and goat cheese and lightly toss together. Divide the salad between 4 servings and serve immediately.

Serves 4
