My new favorite recipe, garlic kale salad. I fell in love with it last year when I tasted it at Wh*ole Foods. So I finally worked out a ratio of ingredients that seems to replicate their taste pretty closely. It's so very nice of them to list all of the ingredients on the label when you buy it there! Since we get at least 2 bunches of kale a week from the CSA, it is helpful to have a few recipes people love, and this one has been a hit. I made it last week for a picnic evening at our local vineyard (yes, even in the south we have a few vineyards and local winemakers!), then again over the weekend for a potluck karaoke evening. It was at that event one of the guys asked if the dish was "that magic kale." Made me grin; a bunch of meat and potatoes kind of guys who discovered kale can taste pretty good!
"Behold, the Lord will pass by, and before the Lord, a great and powerful wind will be rending the mountains and shattering the rocks; but the Lord will not be in the wind. After the wind, an earthquake, but the Lord will not be in the earthquake. After the earthquake, there will be a fire, but the Lord will not be in the fire. After the fire, there will be a sound of a gentle breeze, and the Lord will be there."
But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? Bid her therefore that she may help me. And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful; and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her. Luke 10:40-42
