Kale, Sweetcorn & Red Pepper

Serves 4 as a main dish or 8 as a side dish

Ingredients

2 large bags of kale
2 cans of sweetcorn
2 fresh red peppers chopped into bite size pieces
1 cup fresh parsley finely chopped
2 medium courgettes sliced and chopped into bite size pieces

Optional:  1 small red onion finely chopped

In a large bowl empty the contents of the kale and gently massage 1 tbsp of lemon juice and 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil into the kale.  Massage the kale for 5 minutes so that the kale softens.  Leave aside to rest for 10 minutes.

Serve with a smoky salad dressing.
