Curly Kale and Zucchini Salad

Mum and I made this gorgeous salad.

Kale is extremely good for you. High in iron, vitamins A, C an K, sulphur and fibre, anti-inflammatory and omega-3's. Apple cider vinegar is also anti-inflammatory, and contains the same important nutrients as apples - including pectin, beta-carotene and potassium - plus enzymes and amino acids formed during the fermentation process. The high potassium content encourages cell growth, and prevents that tired lethargic feeling you can get from lack of these nutrients. It also contains calcium and magnesium and enables the stomach to produce hydrochloric acid, which aids digestion. 


1/4 red cabbage
1 bunch of Kale
2 zucchinis
1 carrot 
apple cider vinegar
baby tomatoes
a really good olive oil
salt and pepper


Mix equal amounts of vinegar and olive oil together for a dressing.
Finely slice the cabbage and Kale and soak in the dressing.
Peel the zucchini and carrot thinly or use a julienne noodle maker to cut long curly lengths.
Cut baby tomatoes in half
Add salt and pepper and toss

Add things like figs, avocado, chutney and ham....mmm
