Quick Raw Kale Salad

I've tried kale chips, I've tried raw kale, cooked kale, but I've never tried rubbed kale, until now. It is spectacular.



I was planning on boiling kale for a quick salad, but my sister urged my to keep it raw, and give it a little love. Rubbing oil into the raw leaves softens them, and makes them just as tender if they were cooked.

To make a quick kale salad, follow the recipe below.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 2 minutes
Makes: 1 serving

Ingredients
3 raw kale sprigs
3 tablespoons olive oil
Half teaspoon black pepper
25g feta cheese
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Method
Thoroughly wash the kale under running water, and either allow to dry for about 10 minutes in a warm room, or pat dry with kitchen towel.



Place one sprig at a time in a bowl, and pour the oil on to the leaves. Do this over a bowl, to avoid spillage.



Rub the oil into the leaves using your fingers.



You can use coconut oil, and I've heard of many people doing so, but I tried it, and found olive is better at rubbing, and allow you to season the kale without a lingering coconut taste/scent.

Once rubbed in, gently remove the leaves from the stalk.



Repeat with the rest of the kale and place in the bowl.



Pour over the balsamic vinegar. Don't worry if you're a little heavy-handed, the balsamic really enhances the flavour of the leaves.



Crumble over the feta.



Season with the pepper.



Poach an egg in a saucepan of simmering water.



Once poached, top the salad with the egg.



This salad took me no more than 5 minutes to whip up - the egg was poaching whilst I rubbed the oil and seasoned the kale. It's a quick, healthy, and satisfying lunch, perfect if you're in a rush.
