Kale: It’s Not Just for Cooking Anymore

imgp7074We love kale. But until recently, we’ve always cooked it. I like to saute it and mix it with polenta. My husband adores roasted kale “chips.” For Christmas breakfast, he baked it into a strata.

But a shortage of traditional salad greens prompted us to dress it and serve it raw recently.  Kale salad, it turns out, is the latest addition to our leafy repertoire. We’ve been eating it with a light vinaigrette, but I imagine any dressing would work.

How have you eaten your Local Box kale this week?

  1. Kale Salad

    *1 head of Kale, any variety
    *Olive oil
    *Garlic, minced

    Wash kale, and tear into bite-sized pieces. Place in salad bowl with minced garlic.
    Pour on a little olive oil, and a little soy sauce – how much is up to you! Pepper to taste.
    Massage kale for 1 hour. You can’t skip this step, because this veggie is tough, and it needs to be softened! Do it while you’re watching TV.
    Chill in the fridge then enjoy.
