kale salad

I really have been getting into kale. It has a unique taste, but it's really delicious when paired with the right goodies. I found this yummy recipe here, and it's definitely one I want to whip up.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons dried currants
  • 7 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 bunches Tuscan kale (about 1 pound), center ribs and stems removed, leaves thinly sliced crosswise
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts, lightly toasted
  • Parmesan cheese shavings
  •  
    Preparation
    Place currants in small bowl; add 5 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar. Let soak overnight. Drain currants.
    Whisk remaining 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar, rice vinegar, honey, oil, and salt in large bowl. Add kale, currants, and pine nuts; toss to coat. Let marinate 20 minutes at room temperature, tossing occasionally. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle cheese shavings over salad and serve.
