I'll be spending the morning with our grand-daughter-working this afternoon-and hubby will be coming home from business trip early this evening. All good things..
I realize how 'odd' I eat sometime, but let me share this kale salad recipe. If you don't like or want to eat kale- Check out the salad dressing-it would be good on Taco salad or on grilled meat or veggies.
I really love this side dish, and it was perfect with the shrimp I grilled (love my grill pan). Kale can be a strong flavored green, but the dressing holds it own, and mellows the kale right out... I will be making this again.
Kale Salad w/ Chipotle & Avocado Dressing (Recipe modified from the Raw Chef)
Put in serving bowl:
1 head of kale (take out rib, finely chop- I used the food processor)
'massage' w/ 1 t salt-will soften and look wilted
Add veggies of choice: I added red bell pepper (recipe called for tomato)
Recipe calls for 1/4 C hemp seeds, but I didn't add any. Toasted pumpkin seeds to garnish would be good though
Chipotle/Avocado Dressing ( I put all dressing ingredients in food processor- could use blender)
1/2 bunch of cilantro
1 clove garlic
1 chipotle pepper (I used canned in Adobo...spicy, but good
1/4 C olive oil (I used 1/8 c.-I don't think I'll use any next time)
1/4 C lemon juice
1/4 C vinegar
Process and mix w/ chopped kale. Stores well for a few days.
