It makes me gag.
Don't throw your - "make kale chips" and "saute it with garlic" at me.
It.doesn't.work. because kale is gross.
Imagine my surprise when I tasted a delicious pesto sample on bread this past weekend.
I was visiting my parents and the kids and I wanted to take a ride and do a little shopping for a family party my dad was hosting, so we headed to a cute, unique grocery store (if you're in Poughkeepsie, NY stop by Adams Fairacre Farm - you will like it because it is across the street from the only sbucks in 50 miles).
There were some lovely ladies, giving out samples of organic pesto on yummy bread. I grabbed one as I was trying to keep two kids from running away - D was legit hanging from the carriage chain (that connects the carriage to other carriages with a lock - you have to detach with a quarter to use it... have you seen this?! Obvi the people who invented it weren't trying to keep two kids safe in a parking lot!!!).
Now. I am a sucker for marketing.
Be warned - if put something in a fancy/different package. I.will.buy.it.
A yummy free sample? I.will.buy.it.
But not kale.
I bought the pesto before I even knew it was kale!!!
We served it at my parents house on bread - and it was a big hit.
So... off to try and recreate it...
I added spinach because we had a lot of it, and D loves spinach (because it "makes him huge" -- ok popeye).
It was SO good on fried polenta - but I would imagine it would be great on pasta too.
If you are a kale h8r like me - TRY THIS!
