I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving feast. I know I did!
Food on the day after Thanksgiving usually consists of leftovers. I get that! I don’t know about you, but sometimes, my tummy is just on overload by the end of the day. I want something crisp and fresh and light. Enter-Massaged Kale.
This is probably my favorite veggie/salad meal. I eat it weekly at least. I sit down and eat an entire head of kale because I can’t stop. It is my version of Pringles. Once I pop, I CAN’T STOP!!
How to make it? Clean a head of kale and rip it into bite-sized pieces.
Mix together olive oil and Apple Cider Vinegar at a 3:1 ratio. For 1 head of kale, I use 3 T EVOO, 1 T ACV. Also, add salt to taste.
Whisk it up and pour it onto the kale. Here is the important part. Get in there with your hands. Make sure each kale piece is rubbed up with dressing. The leaves will turn into a deeper green color when they are adequately massaged. I know it seems like extra work, but that is what makes it so delicious. It softens the leaves and helps them absorb the flavor. The whole head only takes me a minute or 2, so its not that much more work, anyway.
See that nice, deep green? It is SO GOOD. I eat it like potato chips, literally not stopping until it is empty.
Hopefully this will help you enjoy all the post-Thanksgiving leftovers without feeling overwhelmed.
