Want a super easy way to prepare kale that's even more delicious than cooking it? Here's the secret: Don't cook kale, massage it.
4-5 large dinosaur kale leaves
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp coarse salt (we love Aztec Sea Salt)
1/2 medium lemon
Directions: First remove stems from center of kale leaves and shred them by hand into large pieces. Add these leaves to a bowl with your olive oil, salt, and lemon juice (Feel free to adjust these measurements to your taste). Finally massage this mixture with hands until your kale becomes bruised and tender.
This salad keeps really well (even if you make it overnight) because the softer your kale gets, the better it is. You can toss it into a mason jar and keep it in the office fridge easily. Sliced grapes, feta cheese, or a bit of parmesan can also help take this easy creation to the next level.
