  • 1 egg
  • ½ bunch of kale
  • A pinch of sea salt
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 6-8 California strawberries
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 yellow onion
  • cucumber
  • 1 tbsp of white vinegar
  • sauce:
  • cup olive oil
  • 3 tbsp of balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp of lemon juice
  • A pinch of sea salt
  • 1 small French shallot finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp of Dijon mustard I chose the traditional one with grains
  • 2 tbsp of honey


  • Chop sweet potato and place on a baking tray. Mix a pinch of sea salt and 2 tbsp of olive oil. Mix well. Bake in the oven at 400° for 20 minutes, or until lightly crispy. Set aside.
  • Chop the kale and place in a bowl. Add a drizzle of olive oil and a small pinch of seal salt. Massage with your hands until softened.
  • Chop your strawberries, cucumbers, tomatoes and parsley. Set aside.
  • To caramelize your onion, all you need to do is chop it, add a tbsp of olive oil and a drizzle of honey. Cook on medium-high for 3-5 minutes while stirring. When the onions appear to be softened and translucent, lower the heat to medium-low. Add the vinegar, mix well, and cover. Let cook for an additional 10 minutes- until golden and soft.
  • Meanwhile, prepare your egg: bring salt water to boil, place the egg in with a spoon for 7 minutes, take it out, and run under colder water for 2-3 minutes. It will then be ready for the shell to be discarded.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together all the sauce ingredients.
  • On a plate, place the kale first, then cover with all ingredients. Add the sauce and fresh parsley. Enjoy!
