Yes, this is a Post about Kale Salad

kale salad from brooklyn commune
Depending on what you’re reading kale is either the next super food that will help us all live to 159 or it’s the butt of #stupidfoodie jokes. While I might roll my eyes at Kale Martinis, I’ll never say no to a kale salad. In fact lately I’ve been making a ton of kale salad at home—it’s easy and best of all it lasts several days in the fridge. Recently I tried the Organic Kale Salad ($9) from Brooklyn Commune and after having it three times within the last two weeks, I can say with certainty that this is a meal you’ll want to eat in the heat . . .

The salad is simple, chopped up kale and radicchio with shaved Manchego and anchovy dressing, Brooklyn Commune has a local and seasonally focused menu and their kale comes from Snug Farm on Staten Island, a farm that visited last summer with Blondie!

Lately I’ve been making my own kale salads with lemon dressing, but after having this salad, I might have to give homemade anchovy dressing a try. How do you like you’re kale salad?

I'm eating a kale salad right now! I like mine with a dressing made from tahini, lemon juice, and agave.

I have been eating/making/loving massaged kale salads for years now- a few of my favorites are the bon appetite recipe with shaved brussel sprouts :
I use half as much oil and sliced almonds
Also this one:
I use whatever miso i have and soy sauce instead of tamari.
