MASSAGED KALE SALAD
Olivia and I are blessed to have good friends. They are the kind who invite you to join them for holiday meals and feed you the yummiest of food. This happened at Easter. A couple we know from church invited us to join them for the Easter meal. It included this delightful massaged kale salad. When I first heard the name I found it somewhat humorous. After all, who gives their greens a "massage" as part of the recipe?
In this case the massaging of the kale gives it a great texture and breaks down the greens so they absorb the other flavors in the recipe and the kale, which can be bitter sometimes, takes on a pleasing texture and taste. The mango, nuts, cheese, and honey give this salad a terrific appeal that you will love.
If you are tired of eating the same old salads all the time, you owe it to yourself to give this one a try. The Memorial Day weekend is coming up and this would make a super accompaniment to your barbecue. Give it a try!
