Two days ago, I happened along a sampling of Kale Slaw from a thoughtful friend. It was amazing! So good that I found myself making it for said BBQ. I was also impressed with this Slaw because this member of the cabbage family is the superhero of healthy foods. For instance, Kale is:
- An excellent source for beta carotene and Vitamin C
- Also great for folate, calcium, iron and potasssium
- Protects against cancer thanks to its bioflavonoids

Rahlen's Kale Slaw
-1 bunch kale
-1 clove garlic (finely diced)
-1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
-1/2 cup sundried tomatoes (preferably in oil) chopped
-1/2 cup fruity olive oil (I used half the oil from the sunddried tomatoes)
-3 tbsp. red wine vinegar
-salt to taste
-parmesean cheese to taste
Cut the spine from each leaf. It's the bitter part so you don't want. Just basically tear the leaves from the spine, then bunch the leaf up and chop into strips, then cut strips into smaller pieces. Place kale into large bowl.
Add all other ingredients and mix well. Let sit for 15min to let the flavours amalgamate. I actually tossed this the day before.
