Servings: 4

 

Ingredients:

20g of dried cranberries

1 large pink grapefruit

2-3 Bunches of Kale (Mine was about 500g ones the stems were removed)

kosher salt

1 tbsp olive oil

20g sunflower seeds

Equipment:

bowl

knife

Cooking instruction summary:

Pull the leaves off the stems of the kale and chop into thin strips or pieces and place them in a large bowlSupreme the grapefruit over the bowl. I have a link in this post that shows you how to do it. Basically cut the peel off and then slice out the grapefruit sections with a knife. Do it over the kale so any juice drips into the bowl.Once you are finished cutting out the segments you will be left with the center pulp of the grapefruit. Squeeze that baby over the kale leaves extracting as much juice as possible.Add the olive oil and a pinch of kosher salt then toss and rub the kale with your hands making sure to distribute the juice and olive oil evenly. Add the sunflower seeds and cranberries and toss again.Eat immediately or let sit in the fridge for a few hours. It’s good either way!Note: I added a few extra sunflower seeds and cranberries on top for the photo. Oh! And I do have to add, I happened to serve this with a quick pork fried rice dish and the rice mixed in with the salad was even better! I will have to revisit the combo making a complete meal. I would add it here but the rice and pork was literally a “kitchen sink” type of thing.Weight Watcher pointsplus note: I just use the nutritional info to calculate.
