Chop in pieces 4slices of bacon
Boil 1lb of potatoes, chopped
Sauté 1c celery, 1small onion in fat, 4min or translucent
Add chopped dill pickle
Add
1/2 c broth or water
1/4c apple cider vinegar
1tsp sugar
1tsp paprika
1tsp dry mustard

Just to a boil for 1 min and toss potatoes with bacon bits

*adapted vegan version*
omit bacon and use coconut oil or broth of choice
I season mine with a homemade veggie bullion cube when I saute the celery and onions.

Meditteranean Kale Salad contributed by Michael Miller

– Kale (de-stemmed)
– (sauce) shoyu, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, honey
– sliced apricots, golden raisin, red raisins (dried and soaked)
– sundried tomatoes (dried and soaked)
– raw chopped walnuts, soaked and dried

Secret tips on prepping Kale:
– tear two spots and rip down stem with one motion
– roll kale leaves up and then final chop with slice straight down the length
– use good source of oil, sodium and acid to break down the fiber and give it a “cooked” texture

Add variety: chopped apple, avocado, cucumber
