1. Place the shredded kale in a bowl and add a dash of sea salt and about a teaspoon of olive oil. Then take your hands and literally massage the kale for at least a minute or two. As you work the kale with your hands, you will immediately notice the leaves turning bright green and softening (rubbing the kale also sweetens it). And viola, that’s it! It can then be used as the base to any salad.
