Steamed kale is tossed in a bright and lemony dressing in this easy side dish.
This flavorful Mediterranean kale salad is mixed up with quinoa and chickpeas and topped with a tomato dressing.
I'd never even had kale before I tried this recipe and now I make it all the time for my husband and I. I use a mixture of kale and spinach and don't measure out the ingredients, just sort of guess until it smells right. I prefer to take all the stems out of the kale before cooking as they don't seem to soften up very well. So yeah, overall, I love this recipe and it's so easy!
Realizing the heath benefits of kale, I decided that this recipe would be my first. It was great! I bought a large bag of pre-washed and cut kale from the grocery store, which made preparation a breeze. Instead of soy sauce, I added two chopped marinated sun dried tomatoes. Served this alongside pasta with Arrabiatta sauce, some warm Italian bread with seasoned olive oil and a nice bottle of Pinot Noir. :)
You should only steam for max 2 minutes to get the bitterness of the kale out. You don’t want soggy kale for a salad. Also there’s wayyyyy too much sodium. You don’t need to add salt because the soy sauce is full of sodium.
Awesome! This recipe is so easy to make and full of flavor! Other than the kale, most of the ingredients should be on hand in your pantry. I made it for the first time tonight and can foresee myself making it again and again. Actually, the dressing would be delicious over fish as well. The one addition I made (to use up veggies) was a handful of cherry tomatoes at the last minute or two.
I had never prepared or eaten Kale. I got some in my bountiful basket and didn't want to waste it. Made this recipe and LOVED it. I'm no longer afraid of Kale lol
THis was delicious! A tasty way to eat a superfood. My husband dislikes raw kale but really enjoyed this.
