Kale 2 bunches
Limes, juice of 2
Honey 1 T
Ground coriander 1 t
Garlic, mashed 1 clove
Salt 1/4 t
Pepper 1/4 t
Extra virgin olive oil 1/2 c
Kidney beans 14-oz can
  1. Wash, stem, and chop the kale. Place in a large bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, honey, coriander, mashed garlic, salt, and pepper.
  3. Drizzle in the olive oil while whisking to create an emulsion.
  4. Pour the dressing over the kale and use clean hands to massage the dressing thoroughly into the kale.  The kale should turn dark green and be softened after the massage.
  5. Drain and rinse the kidney beans, and add to the kale.  Toss to coat the beans in the dressing and serve.
