Kale Salad Recipe

My friend Sally sent me this recipe last year, and it has become a staple in our weekly dinner routine. It’s such an easy way to fill up on a plate of healthy kale, and it’s as delicious as it is easy. It’s a bit like a ceasar salad (it has that lemony, garlic dressing and crispy bread crumbs), but much healthier because of the kale.

I had forgotten about this salad for the past month while on holiday, but then I discovered a whole patch of kale in my dad’s garden last week and since then we’ve been making good use of his garden’s supply. You can find the recipe here. Let me know what you think!

We love kale!! I just planted some to last us through the winter. It is so nice to have fresh greens even though it is cold. Did you know that it actually tastes better after a frost? We eat a very similar salad, but with parmesan or parm-reggiano instead of pecorino. Also makes a good salad with apples and Gorgonzola. And one other random thing…massaging the leaves helps break down the cellulose and gives it a more silky texture. It also changes color and shrinks a little and makes it less bitter tasting.
