We like to have pizza on Friday night. There's something about warm bread and melted cheese at the end of a long week.
Last week I made this kale salad. Eric came home and I was chopping up the kale, and of course I received a stare and doubting remarks. Deep down I know that he loves my creativity, even at the expense of his food.
Of course the kale ended up on top of the pizza. It's one of my favorite ways to eat my veggies! And guess who gobbled it all up?
2 cups lacinato "dinosaur" kale, chiffonade
zest 1 lemon
juice 1/2 lemon
drizzle of balsamic vinegar
drizzle of honey
salt and pepper to taste
Wash kale, remove stem and backbone, and chiffonade to create ribbons. Combine all ingredients for kale salad and toss until leaves are coated.
Cook your pizza-- we layered on fresh tomato sauce, mushrooms, shredded chicken, garlic, onions, and fennel seeds. After pizza has finished baking, top with kale salad and serve warm!
