Makana: Deep in an Ancient Hawaiian Forest
Sweet Kale Salad by Womad 2014 guest Makana from Hawaii

Hawaiian guitarist Makana -- who is one of the guests at the forthcoming Womad in Taranaki -- offers a slack-key style of blues, jazz, Hawaiian and bluegrass sounds.

He turned professional when he was 14 and recently was nominated for a Grammy for his contributions to the soundtrack of the George Clooney film, set in Hawaii, The Descendants.

He's a man who also liks fresh food and so here shares a recipe which he and his sister Tiffani Nicole have come up with.

Feel free to change the ingredients a little (cold roasted kumara goes very well with a kale salad).

INGREDIENTS

Raw Kale (torn)

Ambrosia Apple (sliced)

Candied Pecans (broken into pieces)

Raw Cashews

Hemp Seeds

Coconut Oil

Dates (chopped then mashed)

Raw "nutty" Sheep Cheese (sliced)

Sea Salt (raw)


METHOD

Put all ingredients in bowl

Hand-crush for a minute or so, Put some muscle into it! The kale should become fully soft and coated with the coconut oil and dates

Add a little squeeze of lemon

Enjoy!
