There’s no denying it: kale is a true superfood packed full of magnesium, iron, calcium, beta carotene, phytonutrients, chlorophyll, fiber and so much more.
But it isn't the tastiest on its own, especially raw. Until now.
When it comes to making raw kale appetizing, the secret is in the sauce.
This salad feature's a rich and creamy sauce with a cheese-like tang from a combination of our stone ground macadamia nut butter, lemon juice, and nutritional yeast. Not only does this sauce work great over fresh kale like in this recipe here, but it can also be used to make kale chips in a food dehydrator.
