Kale and Nectarine Salad with Creamy Honey Hemp Dressing
5 stems of Russian kale
3 slices of red onion
2 ripe nectarines
3 Tbsp hemp hearts
1 Tbsp raw honey
4 basil leaves
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/4 cup filtered water
Pinch of grey sea salt
How to make:
Remove kale leaves from stem and chop finely. If you can't find Russian kale, you can use green or black kale. I prefer Russian kale because of it's delicate leaves and because it's less bitter than green kale.
Slice red onion thinly. Cut nectarines in half, remove pit and cut into small pieces. Mix onion, kale and nectarines in a big bowl with your hands. To make the dressing, combine all ingredients into a blender and buzz until smooth. I do recommend using a blender for this dressing because otherwise you won't get the creamy texture that you will when using a blender. Toss with salad dressing and serve!
