I made this tonight using many ingredients found in this week’s CSA! I especially love how sweet the tomatoes are! What a wonderful variety.
1 bunch kale, washed trimmed and massaged WELL
8-10 small tomatoes halved (I used the cherry and grape variety)
12 peppers washed and sliced thin
1 red onion diced
½ cup sour cream
1 Tbsp chili powder Juice of one lime
1 Tbsp salt
2 Tbsp Sriracha
Method: Wash kale well in hot water. Break off into small pieces and soak in a bowl. While the kale is submerged in the water massage well. Don't be afraid to be too rough with it, the more you work the kale, the more tasty it is in salads! Once the kale is appropriately texturized remove excess liquid by pressing the kale into the base of the strainer. Transfer back into a dry bowl.
For the dressing, place all of the listed items into a bowl and whisk! TADA! Your dressing is complete. Pour the dressing over the kale and mix WELL! Making sure you cover all the crevices of the kale. Add chopped veggies to the salad. Toss or arrange neatly over the bed of dressed greens.
You could try this using romaine as well, and omit the excessive massaging! Add cilantro for an extra flavor punch or some cayenne or jalapenos for spice. You can get real creative and top with some guac or sliced avocados. We served it this evening alongside homemade refried beans, smashed mexican sweet potatoes and a simple salsa
