*From Tablespoon.Com

Ingredients to serve 1

      • 2 cups kale (leaves torn from the stems and chopped)
      • 1/2 small zucchini
      • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
      • 1 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
      • 1 pinch coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
      • 1/4 cup cashew halves, lightly toasted

  1. Using a vegetable peeler, slice the zucchini into thin ribbons.
  2. Heat on an indoor or outdoor grill over medium-high. Lightly coat with cooking spray. Arrange the zucchini ribbons on the grates and grill until slightly charred, about a minute. You won’t need to flip them since they’re so thin. Just remove them from the grill and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  4. In a large bowl, toss together the kale, zucchini ribbons and dressing.
  5. Transfer to a plate and garnish with toasted cashews.

This simple salad works as a great side dish, or just add a protein and it becomes a complete meal. Kale is a must have in any diet. It is full of antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties. Add this nutrient rich recipe to your “Food as Medicine” arsenal.

Save this recipe as it’s part of the “Food as Medicine” element in the PCOS 5-Element System. Wishing you a delicious weekend!
