I have been secretly stalking all these massaged kale salads that have been popping up virtually everywhere lately. They all look so healthy, so ambitiously good for you. Just reading the recipes makes me feel like throwing on my wrist bands and jogging shorts and running a marathon.
I keep promising my go-getter self that we are going to make one. My less ambitious self however likes to point out that kale isn’t sold anywhere around these parts, and wouldn’t it be wiser just to stay home and raid Louisa’s Halloween candy than drive 50 miles for some kale?
Then it dawned on me (in a somewhat annoying fashion) that I still have a garden full of chard waiting to be eaten. Why don’t I just substitute chard for kale and make a salad, like immediately? Bravo go-getter! Way to shut down that urge to eat six mini-Snickers bars. Shut it down!
This lovely little salad would be an awesome addition to your Thanksgiving table. Completely seasonal, beautiful, a little sweet, and a mouth workout to boot. You’ll feel so good about yourself it won’t bother you in the least that after the salad you had two slices of pumpkin pie—extra whipped cream of course.
