Kale with Crispy Salami

This is a super quick as well as super nutritious side dish ... not to mention super tasty!!!  ENJOY!!

1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
Pinch cayenne
3 tsp sea salt
5 cups of kale leaves, torn into bite-sized pieces
2 tbsp olive oil
3 large shallots, peeled and sliced into thin rings
8 thin slices of salami, cut into narrow strips (Italian or Hungarian are our faves!)
Black pepper
  • In a small bowl, whisk together honey, vinegar and cayenne.  Set aside.
  • Add about 3" of water to a large pot, add salt and bring to a boil.  Toss in kale and parboil about 3 minutes.  Drain, and let kale dry out in sieve.
  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.  Add shallots and stir-fry until they start to colour (approx 5 minutes).  Remove to a small dish.  Increase heat in skillet to medium high and add salami strips.  Cook until crisp.  Transfer the salami to another dish.
  • Add kale to skillet and toss quickly.  Kale should just be heated otherwise it will overcook and become soggy.  Remove from the heat, add honey mixture and shallots and toss.  Season to taste with pepper.  Transfer the kale to your serving bowl or platter and garnish with the salami.
  • ENJOY!
