1 cup curly green kale, stems removed

1/2 bunch collard greens, stems removed

1/4 cup basil leaves

3/4 teaspoons sea salt

2 cloves garlic, crushed

2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 Tablespoons lemon juice

1/8 teaspoon cayenne

Chop the kale medium fine. To chop the collard greens and basil, first stack several leaves, roll them and cut into thin strips. Then chop medium fine. Add the remaining ingredients and continue to massage the greens, working the dressing into them with your hands.

Indian Greens: Substitute mustard greens for the collards. Replace the olive oil with sesame oil and add 1/2 teaspoon curry powder and 1/4 teaspoon cumin

Asian Greens: Substitute spinach for the kale and bok choy for the collards. Replace the olive oil with sesame oil, replace the sea salt with 2 teaspoons tamari and add 1/2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger. Peeled orange sections would be great in this salad.

***This recipe comes to you as a direct request from one of our students! She is working in DeKalb and had a craving for this kale concoction that we featured in our recent salad class. We don't blame her; we are avid kale lovers and have this one a few times a week, ourselves. Here you go Cheryl...Enjoy!
