Organic Kale Salad - The Recipe

Joan's Favorite Organic Kale Salad
1 head of organic kale (the curly kind)
Olive oil
1 orange
1 grapefruit
1 pomegranate
Handful of the following raw and unsalted seeds:
Sesame seeds
Pumpkin seeds
Flax seeds
Sunflower seeds

Wash the kale and strip/cut the leaves from the stems. With a sharp knife chop the kale leaves to fine bite size pieces (the finer the better) and place in a glass bowl. Add olive oil, approx 2 tablespoons to the kale leaves and knead the oil into the leaves making them tender and soft. Add the juice of 1 fresh orange and knead it into the leaves as well. Do not add the oil and orange juice at the same time, you will not achieve the right tenderness. Set the bowl aside. Seed the pomegranate and add the seeds to the salad. Add the raw seeds of your choice. Mix it all together and enjoy and see who fights for the last little bits left in the bottom of the bowl.
