As the “queen of greens,” kale is an excellent ingredient to add to your diet. Kale is a low-calorie, high-fiber food that aids in healthy digestion, metabolism, bone and joint maintenance, and vision. With its sharp, earthy, and peppery flavor, kale is a popular addition to salads and soups.
Keep the kale in the refrigerator in an airtight bag lined with paper towels to absorb the moisture to keep fresh for up to five days.
Trim off any bruised leaves, then rinse in cold water and pat dry. Tear the leaves into 1-inch strips and chop the stems.
Massage the leaves with dressing to eat raw, or steam to soften. For a crispy snack, toss the leaves with olive oil and salt, then bake.
