Recipe Notes

To massage the kale, sprinkle the de-stemmed leaves with ½ teaspoon sea salt.  Pour a couple of drops of olive oil into the palm of your hands, and rub together. Take a bunch of kale and gently rub together with both hands, repeating until all the kale has been massaged, 2 – 3 minutes. Taste, and if still bitter tasting, massage for a bit longer.

As always, I prefer freshly ground pepper to that of pre-canned and I always use some form of sea salt rather than the processed variety.
