Kale Salad

Ahhh, the boys went camping for the weekend and the girls are home alone.  Time for pedicures, chick flicks, chocolate without judgements, and salad for dinner.

I try to make Dave eat salad for dinner about once a week, he does, then he eats about 14 Slim Jims before bed...I don't know if the salad plan is really helping.  We are having this beautiful salad for dinner, just before we eat our weight in buttered popcorn and chocolate as we cry through some movie.

Kale Salad
adapted from Ellie Kreiger, Weeknight Wonders
2 bunches organic kale
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp. honey
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup pine nuts
6 dried apricots

Remove ribs from kale and tear into bite size pieces.  In a measuring cup add oil, vinegar, honey and salt.  Mix well.  Pour over salad and massage dressing into kale for 30-60 seconds.

Toast pine nuts until golden brown and fragrant.  Pour onto plate to cool.  Dice apricots and add to salad, top with pine nuts.
The Iris are blooming...finally.
