Instructions
  1. KALE: take one bunch of dino kale and remove all the stems by taking a knife down the middle of each leaf on each side of the stem & use only the remaining leaves. DO NOT use the stems as they will add a bitter taste to the salad. Chop the kale into small pieces or strips.
  2. CABBAGE: only use half the head of cabbage, remove the tough white stem and chop the cabbage into small bits.
  3. CUCUMBER: slice into rounds and then cut the rounds into quarters leaving you with lots of bite sized pieces.
  4. CARROTS: I used a potato peeler to shred 3 large carrots & made long thin strips. Using a cheese grater would work too.
  5. BEETS: you can use fresh, raw beets: peeled and chopped into small bites. Or, you can usually find pre-packaged & steamed beets near the pre-packaged salad section of the produce aisle.
  6. SUNFLOWER SEEDS or PUMPKIN SEEDS: I used a couple handfuls of sprouted organic seeds to top the salad off with for added crunch and a variety of nutrients. (Keep in mind your body can digest sprouted easiest - but regular seeds will work too.)
  7. See 'Recipe Notes' below for links to your homemade salad dressing options.
  8. Combine all ingredients into a large bowl & ENJOY!

For a 'coleslaw' style salad, mix in your desired amount of salad dressing and massage into the salad with your hands & allow to sit in the refrigerator for an hour or so, so that all flavors can absorb.
