  2. Rinse the kale and cut into small, bite-size pieces. Remove and discard the thick stem.
  3. Heat a large frying pan and add the butter. Sauté the kale quickly so it turns a nice color, but no more than that. Salt and pepper to taste.

The dressing is great with any type of leafy green salad.
If you like green juice, save the kale stems and ribs and use them in your next juice!

    I made this with a semi soft goats cheese and spring onions and it was incredible. Next time I will likely try it with chèvre

    This one is tasty and super easy. Used lacinato kale and it took only a few minutes to saute. Cut cream down to 1/3 cup (there is plenty of dressing for the salad), added a dash of cayenne, and used 2 ounces of gorgonzola (I think 4 ounces would have been too much taste wish). Everything else was per the recipe.
    My teenager and husband enjoyed it...will add to the recipe box to make it again!

    I tried this tonight with some cheddar cheese and adding sliced leak on top, it was heavenly and we couldn’t finish the whole thing. Definitely satiating, genuine Keto effect and our tummies are very happy. Brilliant recipe!!

    For me it was okay, not excellent. I would try the sauce over hard boiled eggs next time.

    Maybe I used the wrong kind of kale? It was (to me) not as good as many other recipes I've tried from this site. 😟

    I’m cow dairy and chicken egg intolerant so I substituted the heavy cream with coconut milk and the mayonnaise with almond butter. I also added more garlic and Dijon. No measurements; just eyeballed. Turned out pretty dang good.
