I have always, always been afraid of eating RAW kale. I know kale is great for you, and it taste alright steamed or sauteed, but the bitter, harsh taste of raw kale honestly just frightens me. I decided to do some research and look up different ways of preparing raw kale, and the one that seemed like the best option was “massaged” kale salad. So I massaged some, kale, marinated some tempeh, and made my favorite salad dressing, and I am happy to say that the massaged kale was more than edible…it was delicious!
Congratulations, Mina! She was good enough to put a recipe for the salad on Eat Run Love, so you can totally copy her and learn to love raw kale, just like the rest of us. It’s so good!
Here’s Mina, who, to quote Marji, “Is full of so much woe and honeybee tenderness, it’s illegal. Or should be. She is a 12-yr-old honeybee, which I am pretty sure is a world record for bee longevity.”
Don’t forget dignity! Somehow, even dressed as the cutest bee in 18 years, Mina maintains a dignity that’s rare to people, even. She’s like the pit bull-bee-Mona Lisa.
