Green’s Sweet and Spicy Kale Salad

Green's Sweet and Spicy Kale Salad
I discovered Green Vegetarian Cuisine in San Antonio just a few weeks ago and I wish I knew about it earlier.  It is the only vegetarian and kosher restaurant in the area.  A lot of their food options are clean, high in fiber, high in protein and with loads of veggies.  I love it.
Not only is their food healthy, but they are eco-friendly with their energy efficient building, recycling bins and biodegradable packaging.  I highly recommend making a stop here!  Here are my favorites:
Green Vegetarian
Protein Salad – Kale salad, fresh spinach, chickpeas, quinoa tabouli, flaxseed, raw pecan hummus, carrots, tomato, avocado, and roasted tofu
Green Vegetarian
Macrobiotic Bowl – Quinoa tabouli, beans, kale, sauerkraut, seaweed, and steamed broccoli.
Green Vegetarian
Mediterranean Bowl – Quinoa tabouli, baba ganoosh, tzatziki, black olives, falafel patties, cucumbers, tomato, carrots, dolmas, and raw pecan hummus

What I loved most was their Kale Salad.  The tender greens have both a sweet and spicy kick and it is unbelievable.  With some research, I was able to hunt down the recipe.

Green's Sweet and Spicy Kale Salad
I made a big batch of this salad with my over-sized bag of kale from Costco and it turned out great!  The dressing is cooked over the stove and when you pour it over the kale, the kale slightly wilts.  You can eat it warm, or you can place it in the refrigerator and eat it chilled later.  Both ways are equally yummy.

For information about the health benefits of kale, go to my Superfood Spotlight on Kale.

I made about half the bag in my first batch, and throughout the week, finished the entire bag, using this recipe.  I’m surprised I didn’t turn into a kale leaf!  Here’s how to make it…

    Do you also have the recipe for the quinoa tabouli, the raw pecan hummus, and the roasted tofu? I ate at Green Restaurant and this salad was wonderful!
