How to Massage Kale
Massaging kale tenderizes the leaves, making them perfect for a healthy and great salad.
Servings: 1 bunch
- 1 bunch kale
- 2 to 4 teaspoons apple cider vinegar or lemon juice (to taste)
- A generous drizzle of olive oil
- A pinch of salt
Remove stems from leaves. Discard stems.
Chop kale leaves and place in a large bowl.
Add a generous drizzle of olive oil and about 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice. If you want more acidity, you can add another teaspoon of vinegar or lemon juice, to taste. Add a pinch of salt.
Massage with your hands for 1-2 minutes, until softened and tender. You'll notice that the kale will reduce. Make sure you don't massage for too long, or it will become mushy.
Now, your kale is ready to be used for salads. Try my Roasted Cauliflower and Kale Salad with Lemon Tahini Dressing! Enjoy!
