Wow. When I made this version of kale salad last week, I could hardly believe my good findings!
Here's how to make Kale Salad -
one big bunch or two of kale fresh from the market, stripped from the rib in the middle. (left in frig for more than 2 days it will wilt and not be good for fresh salad - it will have to be used for soups).
one lemon squeezed in.
1/4 cup less or more of olive oil
1.5 - 3 T balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon salt (more or less - I like sea salt)
One small red onion sliced thinly (or too your liking)
1-2 carrots in peeled slices
a dash of cayenne
Marinate the carrot and red onion with the rest of the ingredients while waiting for the kale to dry a bit.
the magic is when....you put in the kale and with your hands squeeze it a bit, it instantly softens and becomes easy to chew!!! The fresher the Kale the more easily it softens.
