It seems that kale has been all the rage lately. Both on TV and Pinterest, I am constantly seeing people making their version of kale chips and simply discussing how great the stuff is.
I am embarrassed to admit that as a vegetarian, I've never tried it. Until now. I was at work yesterday, and when a conversation steered in the direction of kale, I realized I'd waited long enough. Thanks to watching an episode of The Engine 2 Diet, I knew exactly how I'd try it first.
It took me all of about thirty seconds. Talk about an easy salad to make on your lunch break at work without worrying about sogginess. Bring your ingredients,and assemble when ready. I chose to go the dirty route, straight up mashing everything together with my hands, but of course, there are more civilized ways if need be. :)
I won't lie; I'm not in love with the stuff. I don't hate it either. I will have to let kale grow on me and keep playing around to see how I like it best. Regardless, I'm thinking if you are already a kale lover, you'll enjoy this!
