WHO I MADE IT FOR?

  • 5/5/15: Roommate dinner with Ashley Deck; served with steak tacos because it was Tuesday and Cinco de Mayo
  • 5/6/15: Dinner with Desa and Ashley; the next time I serve any sort of chicken dish, I think I’ll serve the chicken on a bed of this salad

I was craving this ever since I went to Alden and Harlow. It was so weird to actually crave kale. I found this recipe online. I made the dressing on a Tuesday and used the leftover dressing on a Wednesday. My only regret was that I did not make more dressing to use for the rest of the week. My food processor did freak out a little bit with the pistachios but it’s also a decade old and from Target. The trick to kale is to make it small and douse it in dressing.

INGREDIENTS
Kale (1 bunch)
Shelled pistachios (1/2 cup)
Lemon (juice from lemon)
Olive oil (1/2 cup)
Water (1/2 cup)
Honey (1 tablespoon)
Garlic (3 cloves minced,I like a lot of garlic)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Chop kale into ribbons. Massage kale for 2-3 mins until it starts to turn brighter.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients in the food processor and mix.
  3. Toss salad with as much dressing as your heart desires.

BOTTOM LINE: So healthy, so good. Make this for the non-kale believers and you will convert them.

  1. Thanks for linking to my blog, great post! I have since found out that they use creme fraiche in their version but this recipe is pretty darn close!
