Emerald Kale Salad

Kale Salad

Emerald Kale Salad with roasted peanut vinaigrette dressing.

What a lovely presentation Houston’s did of a kale salad.  I noticed something on the menu I had never seen before—and, of course, I had to try it.

A girlfriend and I decided to split this salad—she wasn’t very hungry and I wasn’t sure how well I’d like it since I’d never had it before.  I should have known anything that comes from Houston’s is delicious.  This was some nice lovely light eating while out catching up on some girl time.

So, if you have nothing else to do today, doll up a beautiful kale salad to look like a mini mountain then munch away on the crunchy goodness of it.

Take-Away Life Lesson:  Who knew kale could be so tasty good once you fancy it up a bit?

      They did a nice presentation, I thought.

        Definitely. I just had a kale salad for the first time a few weeks ago and loved it.

    Kale has become the latest health food fad here… My chef friend Cathy Thomas has written about kale a couple of times. Haven’t tried it myself…but then again, you won’t find it at my usual fare – McD’s.

      Lol. No kale at McD’s that’s for sure.

        Well, don’t be too sure about that…!

    Yuumm, looks so green and healthy!

    • LFFL July 5, 2014 at 6:05 am #

      I’d say that was a pretty healthy salad.

    Looks really good! what else did it have except kale and peanuts and spring onions ( if I’m seeing correctly in the picture! :D) ? I’ve never tried kale! haha

    • LFFL July 4, 2014 at 9:29 am #

      There was some cheese, cilantro, mint, oil, garlic, and other herbs. This is all I can remember anyway.

      • parisaskitchen July 4, 2014 at 9:35 am #

        Thanks! I should try it some day :)

    Is the kale raw? I serve it a lot, but only cooked.

    Virtual hugs,

      Good question. I assumed it was raw but can’t be sure. I’ll have to ask them next time. But, if I had to guess, I’d say it was raw—if memory serves.

    kale is some vile stuff, I’ve never tried it as ‘lettuce’ though. I’ll have to try that out : )

    • LFFL July 4, 2014 at 9:17 am #

      Fancy it up first to your liking or you might not make it through it. ;)

    I love kale and this looks like it would sort my belly out quite nicely! Smiley face

    that looks lovely–bought kale at a farmers’ market and now need to figure out how to turn it into that salad :-)

    • LFFL July 3, 2014 at 11:17 pm #

      Pile it high, Liz, pile it high.
