Wilted kale salad

This recipe could serve a few different purposes: it could give you a great way to use up an excess of kale, it could give you a great alternative to yet another mixed greens salad, or it could give kale a whole new flavor profile in your head that you just can’t get over because you love it so much.  Or, like Neil, you could really dislike it- which is fine.  Not everyone can share my love of all things green and funny looking that are meant to be ingested.  But, really, I did love this salad.

Ingredients:

1 pound kale

Mediterranean Dressing

2 tsp lemon juice

1 medium clove garlic, pressed

1 TBS extra virgin olive oil

salt and black pepper to taste

Directions:

  • Chop your kale leaves into 1/2-inch slices, and cut again crosswise (stems included)
  • Add the kale to a steamer basket and cover and let steam for 5 minutes
  • Transfer to a bowl and toss with Mediterranean Dressing ingredients  while still hot
