Know when to have fun and know when to get up close and personal with your kale! Emily of the food and lifestyle blog “A Time to Kale” was kind enough to share a delicious salad recipe she made using fresh kale and GoodHeart chicken. After 10 days of grabbing food and bevs on the go during a jam-packed-she’s-working-yet-this-girl-knows-how-to-have-fun adventure at the South by Southwest festival and conference in Austin, TX, Emily was ready for a fresh healthy meal. This one came together easily from food she had waiting for her in the fridge (GoodHeart chicken!) and some fresh kale and veggies.
When you make Emily’s favorite massaged kale salad, remember her advice to massage the kale. Eating a massaged fresh kale salad is night and day from chewing on kale that’s been carelessly tossed with vinegar and oil. Something magic happens when you massage kale. It relaxes and loses some of its bitterness — like we all do. Reading her blog makes me want to be Emily, or at least go check out Austin, TX.
