Kale Slaw

kale slawI have not been a very big fan of kale in the past, but Lucinda has a recipe for Kale Slaw with Peanut Dressing in August Martha Stewart Living, so of course I had to try it since I trust Lucinda implicitly.

You slice the kale very, very thinly – and I think this is an important part of the recipe, so make sure you do it!

You cut up some red pepper and carrot and mix it with the kale and some peanuts.

The dressing is simple – oil, vinegar, peanuts, brown sugar and salt in the Cuisinart. It comes out pretty thick, like a thin peanut butter.

Toss it all up and somehow it becomes this amazing delicious salad. I could not get enough of this and had 2 helpings of it. The peanut dressing combined with the very thinly cut kale makes for a very tender and interesting salad.  I didn’t even know I was eating kale and I enjoyed this very much.

    Is a specific recipe available so I know measurements for the kale slaw? I thought maybe I could use cabbage instead of the kale but use the peanuts for dressing. What do you think? Thank you, Barbara

    The recipe was not up on Martha’s site at the time I posted this. It’s actually a copyright violation to exactly reproduce someone else’s recipe, so I don’t do that. The recipe is now up on her site and you can find it here: http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/kale-slaw-with-peanut-dressing?autonomy_kw=kale slaw
