Massaged kale salad and vegan latkes

So tonight for dinner we tried a new recipe, vegan latkes, which are pretty much a potato pancake. They were really good! I made a veggie burger patty (Amy's Texas Burger), and ate it on top of a latke. We also has massaged kale salad. It is called "massaged" kale salad because you massage the kale with the salt that is in the recipe, and it helps the kale wilt down a bit. So good! Kale is such a healthy vegetable, and I love finding new ways to use it! I got the recipe for the vegan latkes from one of my favorite websites,, and you can find it here

The recipe for the kale salad is as follows:
Adapted from

1 bunch of Kale (or enough to fill a big salad bowl) stem removed and ripped into salad size pieces.
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup dried cranberries, raisins. cherries etc, your choice
1 small apple diced
1/4 cup sunflower seeds (out of the shell). I toasted mine in a pan until slightly golden
pepper to taste

Wash kale. Pat dry. Place in salad bowl and sprinkle salt on it. Massage kale for a few minutes until it becomes somewhat wilted. If it doesn't wilt, you can add a sprinkle more salt. Now add the rest of the ingredients and toss. Add toasted sunflower seeds to each portion individually when ready to serve. This will help stop them from becoming soggy. You can change this reacipe up to make it however you like it really. You could use balsamic vinegar, or lemon juice instead of apple cider vinegar. You could add whatever veggies you think you'd like. Go for it!:)
