Posted Jul 14 2011 5:23pm

I could try to eat it raw.

Ew, no. bitter. tough. yuck.

I could fry it in lots olive oil. with salt and pepper.

Ya, that sounds good.

I could boil some funny rice-shaped pasta. Why? Because I can.

I could toss it all together with some almonds. Heck yes.

I could throw in some sweet, sour, chewy bits of awesome. Yes, I think I will.

hmmm, cheese. don't mind if I do.

not without salt and pepper and lemon juice. of course.

Wow, that was easy.

Kale is thick and chewy. Deliciously flavorful. Slightly bitter. and does a good job at absorbing the flavors of other food.

Wait. It's also extremely healthy. Bonus.

Chewy, crunchy, sweet, salty, bitter, colorful, healthy, salad. POW.
