Directions

  1. Warm 6 tbls. oil and dried rosemary in a small pan on low heat until rosemary just begins to drift. Don't boil. Remove from heat.
  2. In a blender or food processor, combine syrup, grapefruit juice and peel, lemon juice, 1 chopped garlic clove, salt and pepper; pulse for about 30 seconds. Run on high continuously while slowly adding oil-rosemary mixture. Continue blending for 1 minute. Adjust salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate in a tightly covered jar if not using right away.
  3. Heat the remaining 1 teaspoons oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the remaining chopped garlic and saute until tender. Add kale or collard greens and braise slightly, about 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
  4. Add 1/2 cup vinaigrette to the greens and saute on mediumlow heat until the vinaigrette is warmed and greens are nearly tender, about 4 minutes. Add the sliced figs and saute 1 minute more. Enjoy!

Loved the rosemary, grapefruit and lemon with the greens. I used bottled grapefruit juice, fresh out of the garden Swiss chard and kale about 8 cups worth. I used Roasted Garlic & Pearl Onions With Herbs
in place of fresh garlic using 3 cloves.
I used fresh rosemary adding it right to the blender with the oil, skipping the infusing part. I also used 4 fresh picked figs in place of the dried. Do take note the nutritional facts are off because there is 1 cup of dressing leftover. I can`t wait to toss a salad with the rest of the dressing!
Thanks for the healthy eats!

Just great. Love the combination of flavors- the citrus with the kale and the figs. Yumm. Easy to make. Followed the directions as written. Had leftover sauce, which was used as a very light dressing for a green salad and then to bake some beets in. Thanks for this recipe!
