Marinated Greens (*Raw *Vegan *GF)

Marinated Greens
from Living and Raw Foods
I first tried this recipe when I was trying to do mostly raw foods.  It was an instant hit with my husband and I (the kids like it alright but it would never be requested for their birthday dinners, I assure you).  It is still one of Ken's favorites , is a nice alternative to a traditional "salad" and loaded with the "healthies"  :)

one bunch kale
one bunch spinach
one red pepper
one yellow pepper
olive oil (approx 3/4 c)
sea salt
cayenne pepper
one lemon
1" piece ginger (personally I have omitted this on several occasions & it's still been great)
1/4-1/2 red onion (depending on how much you love onion!)

Wash the kale and strip the leaves from the stems.  Chop (or tear) into bite size pieces.  Wash and tear spinach as well.  Throw greens into a large bowl and pour approx 1/2 c (or more if you like) olive oil and the juice from the lemon on the greens.  Mix well.
In a food processor or blender combine peppers, red onion, ginger and 1/4 c olive oil, sea salt and cayenne pepper to taste.  Process until it's a liquid.  
Pour marinade over greens and mix well.  
It's enjoyed both right away or after sitting for a few hours!
