Earlier this year, a kind and generous member of our community reached out to us with an unexpected, creative idea. Joe Hodgson had learned about the work we are doing to cultivate community and alleviate hunger in Nashville and wanted to get involved.
This bright, delicious salad is the perfect addition to any meal.
8 -10 bunches of Red Russian or Lacinato kale washed, trimmed of tough stem and thinly sliced into ribbons (chiffonade)3 - 4 apples (your favorite variety, cored, peeled and diced - we like Granny Smith or another tart apple)
1 bunch celery, diced
1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup of honey
1/2 cup of olive oil
7 cloves of garlic smashed and finely diced
1 tsp salt and pepperWhisk the ingredients for the dressing
Thirty minutes before serving, add apples and celery to sliced kale. Pour dressing over kale mixture and gently "massage" dressing into the leaves for 5-7 minutes until kale is gently wilted. Enjoy!
