My son & DIL keep after me to use kale in some of my cooking, & until now I've pretty much ignored them! And, since the two of them are vegetarians, i made this not for them but for a neighborhood get-together, & everyone loved it. Well, almost everyone! The adults enjoyed it but the kids, not so much! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
