When we first started eating kale about two years ago I had no idea what to do with it. Since then I have used it in just about everything we make just as I would spinach, but we still seem to enjoy this basic Kale Salad. It is simple and my go to salad if I have fresh kale. I am not sure recipes can get much easier than this.
Simple Kale Salad
1 bunch of Kale or as much as you think you want to make.*
Lemon Juice – whatever you have on hand (juice of a fresh lemon or the bottled stuff approx. 1 Tbsp.)
Olive Oil – 1-2 Tbsp depending on the amount of Kale
Chili Powder, about ½ – 1 tsp. this can vary based on amount of Kale and your taste preference.
** just for Little Miss Mixture toss some dried cranberries in
Toss all ingredients together to ensure Kale is coated and enjoy.
*Kale unlike many other greens does not get limp. It withstands olive oil better than its relatives. So you can easily make a larger batch of this and allow it to hang out in the refrigerator for a day or two or you can eat it all at once.
