I don't know about y'all, but lately I seem to be hearing more about kale than ever. Like it's the latest craze. But when I saw this recipe for Kale Slaw, I knew I had to try it.
- l head kale, stems removed and thinly sliced
- 1 large carrot, grated
- 1/2 an orange, juiced
- 1/2 a lemon, juiced
- ground black pepper
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1/2 red onion, sliced thin
- 1 slice bacon, cooked crisp and chopped (since I don't dare have real bacon in the house, I used a heaping tablespoon of bacon bits)
- 1 rounded Tbsp. mayonnaise
Set kale aside.
Prepare a large bowl of ice water and a saucepan with boiling water.
Drain the water and blot the onions with a paper towel.
Add the onion, bacon, olive oil, salt, and pepper to kale and toss well.
Add the mayonnaise and mix the slaw well.
Refrigerate until ready to serve. Can be made several hours in advance.
This was so yummy, y'all. Though the next time, I think I'll add the juice of the entire orange. That citrusy flavor lends just enough sweetness to make it addicting.
I know Missy posted a recipe for kale chips not long ago, but have do you use much kale in your cooking? Or is it one of those greens you've avoided, uncertain what to do with it, like I was? Maybe kale is a staple for you. How do you like your kale?
