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.

  1. 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.


  2. 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.


  3. 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


  4. 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!


  5. 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:)


  6. 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,.
