I had discovered Kale a few years ago and cook with it quite often to make soups during the cooler weather.
However a friend found this recipe while watching TV one day and told me about it.
I LOVE this and make it every other week during the summer. It is so refreshing, especially when you use the fresh juices.
1 head kale, stems removed and thinly sliced
1 large carrot, grated
1/2 orange, juiced
1/2 lemon, juiced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 red onion, sliced very thinly
1 slice bacon, cooked crip and chopped
1 rounded tablespoon mayonnaise.
Place the kale into a salad bowl, toss with the carrot, orange juice, lemon juice and salt and using your hands, rub the acid into the kale. Let the kale sit a few minutes while you shock the onion.
Prepare a large bowl of ice water and a saucepan with boiling water. Place the thinly sliced onion into the boiling water for 15 to 20 seconds and then shock them in the cold water, stopping the cooking immediately. Drain the water and blot the onions with a paper towel Add the onion, bacon, olive oil, salt and pepper and toss well. Add the mayonnaise and mix the slaw well.
Refrigerate until ready to serve. Can be made several hours in advance.
