Made an easy kale salad for a weekday dinner using this recipe from The Spruce Eats. It's a jiffy to prepare, and could also be made ahead of time if you want.
We know of many people who are scared to try raw kale because of its bitterness and all that fiber - which makes kale such a super food - can be chewy and dense. We shared the same view too, until we tried the kale from Bountiful! It's tender and even somewhat sweet, especially after being marinated in lemon and olive oil. We only marinated the kale for an hour (instead of the 3 hours recommended by The Spruce Eats) and it was sufficient.
Give the recipe below a try and let us know what you think.
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Cut the kale into 1/2-inch wide strips.
Whisk together the lemon and olive oil and gently toss the mixture with the kale. Add seasoning to taste. Make sure the kale is well coated. It should all appear shiny.
Let the kale marinate for at least 3 hours or overnight in the fridge to tenderize. (We let ours sit for an hour in the fridge and it was fine.)
Enjoy! Optional: Top it with some fresh cheese, nuts and dried fruit for an added oomph.
