KALE SALAD… YUMMM

Processed with VSCO

Lettuce!… #sigh. This was me when I was shopping for my green salad ingredients. So today was one of those days where I was eager to have a green salad but was just not up for the lettuce option. I figured, why not kale huh?

I’m not a fan of lettuce and cannot remember the last time I had it. I always find excuses to not include it in my grocery list.  I’m the type that removes lettuce even in a burger. I only have it when I do not have an alternative, and this is rare.

I have never done a kale salad before and today was going to be a “kale experimental” day where I hoped it would turn out the way I had imagined and the stomach would handle it.

For my kale salad, I used the following:

Kale (stems removed)

3 Boiled Eggs

Cucumber

Carrots

Salt

Olive oil

And this is how I did it:

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius
  2. Chop the kale, lay it in a baking tray, sprinkle it with salt and dress it with olive oil.
  3. Bake for 1 minute (this is for the kale to absorb the olive oil)
  4. Chop carrots and cucumber in thin slices and cut the boiled eggs in half
  5. In a salad bowl add all the ingredients.
