It's lean.  It's green.  It's mean.  It also happens to be downright delicious and equally as versatile in the kitchen.  Give up yet?  I'm talking about KALE.  A while back, Mike and I decided to experiment in the kitchen with homemade kale chips.  Let me tell you, from that moment on we were hooked.  Needless to say, I was way excited when I came across a post last week from friend and blogger, Ella Modern.

I grabbed a few ingredients at the store and with just a little slicing and dicing, viola! I ended up with a delicious little lunch salad full of some of my favorite things!  The carrots add just a little sweetness, the avocado is nice and buttery, and the sunflower seeds add just enough crunch.  Mike and I both enjoyed it so much, I figured I should let the rest of you know, too!  Believe me, there's already another batch in the fridge to get me through my weekend at work.

I'd be more than happy to hear about other KALE recipes you've tried and loved or for that matter, any other recipes worth trying!  I'm always in the mood to try something new! Enjoy the weekend :-)


  1. OMG, we LOVE Kale over here! i tend to braise it a lot, splashing it with some red wine vinegar at the end. Also, i love it sauteed with eggs. It holds up pretty great in soups as well (better than, say, spinach). You should make some Zupa Toscana with it! It's DEADLY!

    1. Totally read your comment at work this weekend and was trying to figure out who 'Little By Little' home and saw your thumbnail photo and was much less confused! Hope you had a great weekend! You'll have to get me that recipe of yours, I'd love to try it!
