I tried kale in a recipe a couple of years ago and it was bitter and disgusting! So it took me awhile to work up the nerve to try it again because I know it is so good for you. I found this recipe in Colleen Patrick-Goudreau's book, Vegan's Daily Companion. I have made this at least a dozen times.
Massaged Kale Salad
The recipe includes onion, carrot, cherry tomatoes and quinoa. Instead of using oil for the dressing you massage half of an avocado along with apple cider vinegar, some lemon juice, garlic powder and Dijon mustard into the kale mixture. I always chop up the other half of the avocado and toss it in with the cherry tomatoes. This salad tastes even better the next day!
