Find it On Pinterest
Cook's Note: I had a craving for anything KALE and settled on a salad. I found this wonderful recipe on Pinterest via Gimme Some Oven and thought I'd give it a try on my own. I varied this recipe to make my own version (see below) - but this was a hit in my household and I will be making it again and again. You just can't get any healthier than KALE!
Thanks to Moonfire Orchards for the awesome organic KALE!!
What You Will Need:
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 green onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
1 cup dried cranberries
2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
juice and zest of half a lemon
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1 bunch kale, very thinly sliced
1/4 cup glazed pecans (such as: Emerald Pumpkin Pie Pecans)
(optional) 1/4 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add green onion and saute for 3- 5 minutes or until tender. Add garlic and continue sautéing for 1 minute. Next add cranberries, red wine vinegar and lemon juice/zest, and stir to combine well.
Season with salt and pepper.
In a large mixing bowl, toss the kale with olive oil and an extra pinch of salt, and massage kale with your fingers for 1 minute until tender. Add in the cranberry/green onion mixture and nuts. Toss to combine. Serve topped with crumbled cheese if desired.
