Winter Radish & Kale Salad

This winter salad is not only grounding, replenishing, and supportive but it’s so festive for the season! For a salad, it’s really got some heat in the delicious pungent peppery flavor of radishes.

The root vegetables of Daikon radish and Red radish provide the nutritional grounding really needed to keep our digestive fires burning hot during the winter season along with an immunity boost! The Radish family actually promotes the movement of bile and aids the body in fat digestion, decongests the gallbladder, cleanses the blood and liver, and safely lowers blood pressure.

Kale, still a trendy superfood, and for good reason. It’s hardy cold weather green leaves are packed with energy and nutrients necessary to keep our blood, kidneys, and liver clean and functioning well.

Try this salad like a relish or a julienne dish! Share this with your friends and enjoy a fresh twist at any gathering!

Winter Radish & Kale

What’s in it:

3 Daikon radishes

1-2 bunches of Red radishes

3 Kale leaves (I used Green kale)

1/4 tsp real sea salt (I use a blend of pink Himalayan salt for added minerals)

1/4 cup olive oil

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1-2 tsp honey (raw and local for added immunity factors)

Optional Additions: shredded carrots, parsley, or cilantro and lime juice

What to do:

Place the radishes and kale into a large Food Processor and chop until your desired texture. You could shred the radishes and finely chopped the kale if you prefer! Place the vegetables in a large mixing bowl, add the salt and toss. Let the veggies release their water (10 minutes). Drain the water. Whisk the oil, honey, and vinegar in a small bowl and pour over the veggies. Toss well to integrate and let marinate about 15-20 minutes before serving. Mmmmm!
