detox foods - kaleKale Salad with Lime Sesame Marinade

Enjoy this delicious kale salad by adding your own toppings or as is. Sesame seeds add  bone strengthening power to this highly nutritious green salad, something we all need!


  • 1 head kale, shredded or chopped into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup leeks or green onions, finely diced


  1. Rinse kale and place in a medium-sized bowl.
  2. Cover kale with salt and massage until kale wilts. Continue until the kale has shrunk in size and there is green water in the bowl. Drain the liquid, reserving for later.
  3. Add lime juice and massage again.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine sesame oil with a few teaspoons of the reserved liquid.
  5. Press garlic into the juice/oil mixture and stir or shake well.
  6. Chop bell peppers and leeks or onions. Add to kale.
  7. Pour dressing over salad and toss well, squeezing with hands so that the marinade penetrates the kale. Allow to sit at room temperature for 15 minutes or longer before serving.
  8. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and toss once again right before serving.
