The beauty of a summertime salad is all the garden goodies you can put on top of it. Fresh apricots have been making an appearance in our farm box these past few weeks – a sign that tomatoes and cherries will be added soon. For this video, I wanted to make a simple summer salad with two star ingredients – kale and apricots. I lightly grilled the apricots to caramelize them a bit, bringing out an extra sweetness. The base of the salad is kale. I learned the secret to a kale salad several summers ago, when I was at a backyard BBQ and became entranced watching the hostess massaging the kale for at least 10 minutes before adding the other ingredients. The massage is an essential component to a kale salad. It lightens both the texture and flavor of the thick, fibrous leaf providing a nice meditation for the preparer that is well rewarded with the kale’s sweet flavor.
