Kale superfood salad: $8 ($6 in the quick grab fridge)
We love working with kale–it’s the ultimate for the human body and makes you feel good! The kale salad in particular is always superlocal, and the flavors change daily depending on what’s fresh and available from Maui’s farms.
The kale salad is made with curly green and lacinato kale, sprouts, fresh veggies, often a nut crumble and a homemade salad dressing like Coconut Garlic, Almond Butter Peanut Sauce, Red Pepper Nacho Cheeze or our Herbal Infusion. Sometimes we add superfoods like goji berries, mulberries, bee pollen and fresh coconut noodles. We locally source: apple bananas, coconuts, strawberries, papayas, lemons, limes, pineapples, mangoes, kale, chard, collards, tomatoes, beets, green peppers, ginger, avocados, zucchini, green onions, maui onions, spinach, cabbage, broccoli, corn, herbs (mint, basil, cilantro, parsley, rosemary, oregano, thyme), sprouts (sunflower, radish, clover) and wheatgrass. Produce that is fresh, meaning picked within the last couple days and NOT shipped on a boat here is pure living food with enzymes and proteins that are really good for you. We personally pick up 75 percent of the produce from the farmers at their farm, with two runs per week in our car that travels from Lahaina to Haiku and Kula running on Maui-made biodiesel. We love locally sourced fuel. That’s what’s up!
