and includes Kale, a cruciferous vegetable that is especially rich in cancer prevention phytochemicals .

Ingredients

    • 3 sweet potatoes
    • 10 c. chopped raw kale
    • 2 cucumbers, peeled
    • 1/2 bunch cilantro
    • 3-4 green onions
    • 1/2 avocado
for the dressing
  • 3/4 c. raw cashews
  • 1 c. water
  • 1/3 c. agave | or honey

  5. Place washed & dried, chopped kale in large bowl.
  6. Add cucumbers, cilantro, onions & sweet potatoes.
  7. Top with sliced avocado.
  8. For dressing, combine all ingredients & blend on high until very smooth.
  9. Dress the salad (using all or only a portion of dressing), or leave it on the side for people to decide how much they want.
