Warm Keto Kale Salad

Warm Keto Kale Salad

Hey boys and girls! Today I’m back with another recipe for a salad… but this isn’t just another salad. What makes this salad special is the fact that we will be serving it warm. And there’s a good reason for that.

Don’t get me wrong – Kale is a wonderful ingredient. It’s low in carbs, rich in fiber and packs more vitamins and amazing nutrients than I can ever hope to remember. It’s also beautifully green. But, boy, is it tough. And not in the good, mentally-strong way. I mean tough as in ‘I don’t know if I’ll be able to chew this’ kinda way. That’s why I actually prefer to sauté kale leaves before I use them as a base for my salad – it’s a texture thing for me and 100% just personal preference.

This salad can easily be made vegetarian – just skip the bacon and cook your kale in a couple of tablespoons of butter or olive oil. When I don’t feel like going for a fatty, heavy cream dressing, I just drizzle this goodness with some balsamic vinegar instead.
