Tip

Always use double the amount of basil to kale, otherwise the kale dominates the flavour.


Substitute kale for baby spinach or rocket.


Add a squeeze of lemon juice or some fresh chillis for a kick.


Blend with fresh feta to make a yummy dip.

    I actually made a few adjustments to this (eg I didn't add capers) but the combination of cashew and macadamia was just delicious! I really love this recipe. It was super popular with all my mates, too. Yay! tmrc_emoticons.-)
