2 12-ounce bunches kale, stems removed, leaves cut into thin strips or chiffonade
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon salt, divided
1 cup whole pecans or hazelnuts
1 medium turnip, peeled and grated (1 cup)
1 medium rutabaga, peeled and grated (1 cup)
1 medium carrot, grated (1 cup)
2 green onions, cut thin on diagonal
1/2 cup pure maple syrup or honey
2 tablespoons organic canola oil or vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons lemon juice or vinegar
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons agave nectar or honey
Massage olive oil, vinegar and half of the salt into kale for a minute or two and then set aside for about 20-30 minutes. Gently toss turnips, rutabagas, carrots, nuts and onions with the maple syrup or honey, oil, cayenne and remaining salt.
Make the dressing by whisking the lemon juice, zest, olive oil, soy sauce and agave or honey. When kale is softened, combine it with the root mixture, and then toss everything with the dressing.
