This year, I have started a larger vegetable garden in which among many greens and vegetables, I have planted curled green kale. Kale is known to have leaves that are a bit chewier and coarser than lettuce, making them less popular among kids and young folks. What I always do with it was to use it in my green smoothie! It gives the smoothie a beautiful bright green color and makes it nutrient rich without compromising the taste! You can find the recipe here.
However this time, I felt these home-organically grown kales are very delicate, honestly softer than lettuce leaves. We pick them and out them in a basket and boom! Wash and eat!
Therefore, I decided to make a full yet light dinner out of them. The result was perfect and so so so delicious that I decided to write a blog about it. Here Is my recipe for this semisweet kale salad. You can definitely make this salad even if you don’t have your own kale; simply grab a bunch at the grocery store with smaller and younger leaves. I am sure you get very similar results! Enjoy!
