Kale and Mixed Greens with Creamy Cashew Dressing



I haven't featured a Guest Blogger in quite some time, and I am happy to report that I have a wonderful, quick and easy recipe to share from a Guest Blogger, my Aunt Karen Burzichelli, who is a Registered Nurse and Holistic Health Coach.  Here's her story...

As I turned 50-years-old, I started having a lot of health issues, especially digestive issues.  After a lot of trial-and-error, I finally discovered I was allergic to dairy.  With my new-found allergy, I started learning more about nutrition and how to use food as medicine.  The discovery led me to make the decision to go back to school to become a Holistic Health Coach.  After 30 years of taking care of others as a nurse, I now wanted to teach people how not to get sick!  After finishing school with the Institution of Integrative Nutrition, I started my business, Woman to Woman Health Coaching.  I now teach people how to use food as medicine and how to make their favorite recipes healthy!  I also offer different services such as grocery store tours, pantry do-overs, and in-home health and wellness classes with cooking demos for groups.  Here is my recipe for an easy salad that is tasty for herbivores and carnivores alike!  The cashews make a creamy dressing that you will swear came from a bottle, and the textures throughout take this salad to the next level.  Enjoy!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 cups mixed greens
  • 2 cups kale
  • 1 tablespoon good quality oil
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 2 cups carrots peeled
  • 2 apples cut in chunks
  • 1 1/2 cups cashews (soaked in water for 2 hours)
  • 3/4 cup of water
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

1.  Tear the kale in small pieces and massage for 3 minutes with a small amount of either olive oil or coconut oil.  This will get the toughness out of it.  Place kale, mixed greens, walnuts, raisins, carrots, and apples in bowl.

2.  Rinse the cashews and put in high-powered blender or food processor with water.  Add sea salt and cracked pepper to taste, and blend until creamy.  Pour over the salad and toss to coat.
