Hello friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! We took full advantage of the kids being with the
Last night we grilled up some steaks, and I roasted some squash, sauteed some mushrooms, and made the best kale salad to eat on the side. It’s so easy, with only a few ingredients, and really is so, so good that I could eat the whole bowl. It kind of creates its own dressing, and even if you’re not a huge fan of kale, this one is worth a try. I thought I’d share it with you today!
The Best Kale Salad Ever
Only a few ingredients and a couple of minutes make for the most flavorful kale salad you’ve ever tasted!
- 1 bunch lacinato kale (really any type of kale works fine)
- 5-6 peppadew peppers
- 2 tbsp pesto
- extra virgin olive oil for drizzling
- freshly grated parmesan cheese
Remove the stems from the kale, and chop into small strips. Massage the kale strips in your hand just a moment to begin to tenderize the kale. Add kale to a large salad bowl.
Dice the peppers into small pieces and add them to the kale, along with the pesto. Drizzle any juice from the peppers in over the kale and a bit of olive oil. Mix to combine the kale, pesto, and peppers, season with salt and pepper to taste. Top with freshly grated parmesan just before serving.
We have some great veggies from the markets and a little more time for cooking dinners since this week is FALL BREAK! Here’s what we’ll be eating for dinner this week:
- Beef and Eggplant Ragu with Fresh Pasta
