      We love Kale at our house. This is a good way to fix it. So many people are unfamiliar and therefore afraid to try it. GO FOR IT! Great source of vitimins and tastes good too.

      I had some leftover kale from a soup I made and was looking for a recipe to use it up. I'm glad I tried this one -- it is SO good. I carmelized the onions for about 10 minutes, added the garlic and cooked for another 2 minutes, and then added the kale (stems removed). I also added a little water to the pan which helped the kale wilt. I used white balsamic vinegar as the finishing touch. Your recipe is quick, easy, healthy, and most of all -- really delicious. We loved it and will be making it again.

      Excellent! Since I love the taste of carmelized onions, I decided to use one whole one and it added great flavor. I also felt that that the recipe benefited from the addition of salt (just a pinch or three) and a few splashes of Mrs. Dash seasoning. But what really made the dish was the addition of balsamic vinegar at the end--it really enhances the taste of the kale and is not to be missed. If you're trying to add more greens to your diet or just looking for a quick and tasty side dish, try this recipe!
