Kale; that hardy salad green that is oh so trendy, we know it’s loaded with antioxidants and really healthy, but if not done right the bouncy, hardy greens can be rather unappetizing!
The trick I have found, is to dress up the kale with a tangy dressing, and really give it a good massage to evenly distribute the dressing. My favorite type of kale to use is a combination of the Curly and Lancino Kale, these hardy leaves hold up well when dressed and taste quite delicious once they are marinated, perfect for your holiday take along dishes!
The kale provides a delicious base for a variety of toppings; my favorite winter addition is a medley of beautiful, jewel like roasted root vegetables, finished with lightly toasted seeds and cranberries, and perhaps a little crumbled feta, perfection!
I hope you enjoy this crowd pleaser recipe, it is gorgeous languishing on a large platter, or plated individually with some chicken or salmon added.
