Introduction

Even kale needs some love. Massaging an acid-based dressing into the fibrous green leaves tenderizes them, making the healthy vegetable more palatable in its raw form. Even kale needs some love.

Ingredients

    2 bags baby kale salad
    4 tablespoons Garlic Dijon Vinaigrette
    juice and zest of one lemon
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    1 hard-boiled egg, finely chopped (optional)



Tips



Directions

Place the kale in a large mixing bowl. Pour dressing and lemon juice over the greens, then massage the dressing into the kale for 5 minutes. This will help soften the kale. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

Just before serving, add the egg, black pepper, and lemon zest.

    I addded a little more garlic, red onions, and roasted redp peppers to liven up the color. Overnight is the best way to enjoy this. - 11/10/12

    A very yummy lunchtime recipe! I added some other raw veggies (cucumber, carrots & red onion) to bulk it up a bit. I love kale in all forms so this was perfect. As suggested I used lacinato kale, it worked great. - 4/2/12

    Tried kale salad before, did not soften. Maybe overnight will work better. I did talk to a chef who had a great kale salad w/ asian dressing and shitake (sauteed) mushrooms. Wash and cut up kale. Drain in colander,salt heavily, mix by hand and allow to sit 1-6 hours. Rinse, pat dry and proceed. Yum - 4/26/13
