Mainely Dish Recipe Video: Massaged Kale Salad

If you’re wondering, yes you do have to massage the kale in this recipe, and yes it’s actually fun. I was unfamiliar with the process of massaging kale until I learned why it is so important. Massaging the kale with oil and lemon juice helps break down the tough fibers and removes the bitterness in the kale. Give kale another try if you didn’t like it in the past. The last time I tried kale it was raw in a smoothie and I never wanted to eat kale again. I’m glad I gave kale another try in this recipe because now I know there are ways to decrease the bitterness and make kale taste great!
