Basil Pesto Marinated Kale, Quinoa & Haloumi Salad

Basil Pesto Marinated Kale & Haloumi Salad a1

Needless to say, this is a kale lovin’ blog. I love kale. My beloved loves me and therefore, he has to love kale by default, even though I caught him “whining” to my friends that kale is all I cook when it comes to green vegetables of late. He is such a brave man, isn’t he?

The irony is …well… hello to another kale recipe! This time I’m not tip toeing around the chlorophyllic taste kale by sautéing in garlic infused olive oil. Let’s go raw kale shall we?

I know raw kale is not everyone’s cup of tea. Let’s get rid the “raw” word as it seems to freak people out. To make raw kale tasty, I marinated it with homemade basil pesto. Let’s hope that words like “marinated” and “homemade” will make raw kale sound more appealing to you hey?

    Looks deliciously tasty! I love raw kale in salads with dried cranberries, apples, nuts and a orange vinaigrette dressing!
