I WOULDN’T BE MUCH OF A “FOODIE” IF I DIDN’T PUT SOMETHING ON HERE ABOUT KALE.  KALE IS EASILY THE MOST TRENDY THING OUT THERE RIGHT NOW AS FAR AS FOOD GOES.  KALE IS THE KING! ! !  WAY AHEAD OF ALL THE OTHER “SUPERFOODS”.  IT’S FULL OF VITAMIN A, C, K, IRON, POTASSIUM, AND MANY ANTI-OXIDANTS.  BTW – VITAMIN K IS AN ANTI-INFLAMMATORY AND IS KNOWN TO REDUCE THE RISK OF CANCER – – JUST SAYIN !

KALE IS A TOUGH HEARTY GREEN, WHICH MEANS IT DOESN’T GET SOFT OR MUSHY AS EASY AS MOST LETTUCES.  IT STANDS UP WELL TO THE ACIDIC VINAIGRETTES, AND ITS NATURAL BITTERNESS PAIRS WELL WITH LOTS OF ITEMS.  THIS IS A GREAT GREEN TO USE FOR THOSE TYPES OF SALADS WHERE YOU WANT TO HAVE IT ALL PREPARED AHEAD OF TIME, INCLUDING THE DRESSING.  I PERSONALLY STARTED PUTTING IT ON MENUS AROUND CHRISTMAS TIME OF 2012 AND TO THIS DATE HAVE SURPASSED THE 10,000 PERSON MARK OF SHOCKED, AMAZED, AND SATISFIED CUSTOMERS, MANY OF WHOM CAN’T BELIEVE THEY ATE KALE AND LIKED IT.  MANY MORE HAVE ASKED FOR RECIPES.  IT HAS BEEN SO OVERWHELMINGLY RECEIVED THAT I AM PUTTING IT ON MY MENUS YEAR ROUND.

HERE IS A DOOZY – – – GRILLED BEEF TENDERLOIN AND KALE SALAD, PICKLED RED & WHITE RADISHES, MARINATED GRAPE TOMATOES, CARROT CURL, JAPANESE CUCUMBER AND A WONDERFUL COCONUT RED CHILI VINAIGRETTE.tenderloin kale salad

FOR A GUILT FREE CRUNCHY TREAT TRY MY KALE CHIPS ON THE RECIPE PAGE.  IT’S WAY BACK AT THE BEGINNING OF THE RECIPES.
