Eat Your Greens: Simple Kale Salad

This weekend I trimmed that last of my winter kale.


I dressed it with a simple vinagrette of olive oil, lemon juice, chili powder and salt.  Proof that all that was needed was a few ingredients to bring out the natural flavor of these beautiful leafy greens.

I admit it, I'm a kale-a-phobic, and I want to change! The chili and lemon dressing sounds divine!

Sarah said...

This is very similar to one I make. The lemon juice really brightens it.

Love this healthy salad and I bet the chili gives it just the right amount of kick.

I just wrote a post about growing kale in my climate :) That salad looks lovely and that is one of the best ways to eat it. Hope my harvest is as successful as yours!

i am slowly learning to like kale more and more! This salad looks like just a way for me to enjoy it in its simpliest form:)

I didn't get around to growing it this year. I will have to do better.

Kale is just one green that never caught on with me. I like collard, mustard, and other greens, just not kale. I need to give it another shot since it was years and years ago that I tried it.

Tina said...

I have never grown kale. This is my first year gardening after a 25 year break! It's been fun starting up again. Lovely salad there, Velva.

I do enjoy kale salads recently and more and more restaurants are offering them here also. This one sounds delicious and I love the little spicy kick to it.

Michelle said...

Lemon juice goes so well with kale.

Zoe said...

I love my greens too and seeing your salad makes me feel like eating more greens...

Fantastic! I've heard all sorts of things about "massaging" the kale with your dressing, but I think it's great raw, and love to just clip it from my garden for a fresh salad.

Love that healthy dash of chili powder in the dressing!

Rhodesia said...

I have to say that looks delicious. The only time I grew kale it was as tough as leather even when young. Think I must try again from a different source!. Have a good day Diane

Pam said...

I've just not gotten into the kale thing for some reason, but this is a recipe to try. It really sounds good with the chili powder giving it a little kick. Thanks for the recipe!

Angie Schneider said...

This is exactly the way I love my kale...simple and fresh.

~~louise~~ said...

Oh you lucky "girl" Velva. How I wish I was harvesting Kale from the garden now. Heck, I'd be happy harvesting anything about now.

I'm all for simply delicious as I am sure this Kale Salad is. Thank you so much for sharing, Velva...I better add Kale to my grow list:)

Barbara said...

I'm not a great lover of kale...however....on a recent trip to Savannah, a farm to table type restaurant served picked kale as an appetizer (along with an unusual pimento cheese and lamb rillette, all served in those little ball jars with homemade lavosh.). Oh my it was divine,.
