Taste of Heaven!

Naturally, Danny Seo

So I love this new mag – Naturally , Danny Seo.  The tag line says it all…”where style meets sustainability”.  It’s full of great articles and wonderful recipes!  The latest issue, Spring 2016 had a few recipes I couldn’t resist trying.  I am always looking for new, healthy dishes to mix things up in the kitchen and keep me from the food rut I often find myself in.  I don’t eat as much Kale as I know I should and since it’s full of nutrients and cancer fighting properties I was psyched to find the Messaged Kale, Avocado & Mango Salad in this issue.  It’s easy to make and full of flavor.  I paired it with a baked salmon and together they made for a tasty meal – felt like something I would have a hip restaurant in the city dining Al fresco.  I’ve included the recipe here so you can try it out too!  It’s perfect for the approaching warm weather as a summer dish for a gathering of family & friends!  I was so impressed with this salad that it’s inspired me to find more recipes using kale – hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Messaged Kale, Avocado & Mango Salad

1 bunch kale

1 teaspoon olive oil

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1 avocado, diced

1 mango, diced

1 lime, juiced

1/4 cup pumpkin seeds

Wash kale and remove stem.  Cut the kale into thin ribbons (I wasn’t quite as dainty about this and just shredded it by hand) then place in a large bowl.  Add the olive oil and sea salt to the kale.  Message with hands for 2-5 minutes.  It’s amazing how it immediately starts to turn a bright green and go from a tough leaf to a soft seaweed-like consistency.

Gently fold in the diced avocado and mango, reserve a few pieces for garnish.

Transfer to a serving bowl and drizzle with lime juice.  Sprinkle in pumpkin seeds and reserved mango & avocado.


Naturally, Danny Seo
