Kale chips are so very easy to make, and they do not have to be cashew based to be super delish. These crispy, crunchy, mouthwatering and nutrient dense snacks are a revolutionary addition to anyone’s diet! Not to mention that if you find yourself sneaking some deep fried chips every once in a while raw kale chips are an excellent replacement that WILL hit that scrumptious comfort food snack spot.
Not only does this dressing make an incredibly tasty kale chip recipe, but if you are like me you may give the kale a taste before it goes into your dehydrator and end up eating a mighty large bowlful as is (not to mention that you can enjoy this recipe whether you have a dehydrator or not)! One thing I have found is that if the dressing tastes great on the fresh kale, it will also taste amazing as dehydrated kale chips. So if you have favorite dressings, try them out on some fresh kale – make an extra large batch and throw any leftovers into your dehydrator…..you may just come up with the best raw kale chips yet!

- ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
