Description

This is a new favorite! Quick and easy, it’s also ridiculously fun to make. Use local kale, apple cider vinegar, garlic and apples to make this a Localvore tasty treat.

Ingredients

1 bunch
kale
1/2 teaspoon
sea salt
2 tablespoons
apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup
olive oil
1 clove
garlic
1  
apple
   
black pepper

Instructions

Remove stems from kale, cut or tear into large pieces, and place in a large mixing bowl. Add salt and olive oil and gently massage into kale for a few minutes with your fingers. Add vinegar and garlic and massage a few more minutes, until kale is wilted. Finally, add apple and ground black pepper. Adjust seasoning to taste, and serve, or add any of the optional additions (disclaimer: I almost never measure the ingredients when I make this – it’s a very flexible recipe that is easy to adjust on the fly).

Notes

If you don’t mind using some non-local ingredients, try any of these additions or make up your own:
1/4 cup sunflower seeds, raw or toasted
1/4 cup dried currants, cherries, or raisins
1 avocado, cut into chunks
Substitute lemon juice for olive oil and add lots of fresh parsley
