I hate the taste of kale….my single exception has been to use it ground up in a smoothie with enough fruit to hide the earthy flavor. Yet, I can’t seem to escape it since the health benefits are cray cray and my CSA keeps jamming it down my throat (figuratively speaking, of course).
Enter this delicious chopped kale salad. It’s quick and easy, and completely approachable for anyone with an aversion to
dirt lettuce kale. The trick, and this is ESSENTIAL, is to chop the kale finely – I pulsed it in my food processor to achieve this, but I’m sure a quick chop chop with a good knife would help you achieve the same.
Dehydrated cranberries add a sweetness that cuts at the bitterness of these leafy greens. Pine nuts add a great crunch and nuttiness. And the poppyseed dressing is creamy, but spreads out into a light and sweet topping when mixed with the other ingredients.
Nothing fancy with the recipe here, I used the poppyseed recipe from Pinch of Yum and made no changes, please visit their site for detailed instructions.
Healthy eating, new kale lovers!
