Kale Slaw: 2 variations!

Ok, so I don't normally like slaw that much, but I like that this recipe has two options: sweet or creamy (at least those are the two options I use). The original recipe called for mayo, but I don't love mayo and thought sugar added a nice touch instead. I use rapudura (brown organic whole cane sugar), but honey would work--or whatever. It's a great way to get in your kale--superfood fix.

  • 1 head kale, stems removed and super thinly sliced
  • 1 large carrot, grated
  • 1/2 orange, juiced
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced very thinly
  • 1 slice bacon, cooked crisp and chopped
Final addition/Variations:
Creamy version: add 1 T mayo
Sweet version: add 1-2 t. sweetener of choice

Throw everything together and massage it all with your fingers. It's great to use fingers because you work the acids from the citrus into the kale and help it "wilt" a little. Add the sugar or mayo at the end. Then place in the fridge until you need it. The bacon is best put in at the end though, to ensure it stays crispy.
