The secret to this salad is in the massage – when you squeeze the kale with lime or lemon juice, the acidity “cooks” it, making it softer and shrinking the greens down to a fraction of their original state.
Whenever I serve this pasta sauce to my friends and family, they flip out! 'This is KALE?' they ask. 'Yet it is', I proudly reply... and then they ask for seconds. It is a 'raw vegan' sauce, too -that makes it even more amazing! I love it because it lasts for up to 2 weeks refrigerated and freezes really well! I always make a double batch.
These sweet treats are guilty-free, fun to make and excellent for healthy parties, snacks, desserts, and hostess gifts. Since they are all made with coconut oil, which melts at 72 degrees, they must be kept refrigerated until you serve them. Take out 30 minutes before serving for best texture. You can also make double or triple batches and freeze them the future.

This is one of my favorite salads! It's colorful, hearty and nourishing. From family holidays or neighborhood pot-lucks, this salad is always a hit.
This recipe makes a lot, which is a very good thing! It saves well and lasts for a week, refrigerated and undressed.
