One morning, when I was very ill and not interested in food much at all, I woke up with this combination of ingredients in mind that I felt like I could actually willingly eat. The kids went out and harvested what bits of kale they could that were sticking out above the snow. And Steve mixed up the salad, just the way I asked.
Start with fresh kale, torn into quite small pieces, in a bowl. Add a bit of olive oil, a splash of balsamic or apple cider vinegar and an optional sprinkle of fine sea salt. Massage them all together. Toss with grated carrot, apple chunks and raisins. When I made it again last week (as pictured above) I added some ripe pear as well. So simple. So good.
