Wilted Kale with Hummus Dressing

One thing I love about spring is that our menu at home gets lighter, brighter and healthier.  It’s not too hot outside and it’s not too cold – it’s just right.  A lot like this wilted Kale and hummus salad, it hits the spot just right!

Here’s what you’ll need: makes 2 servings

3 cups of Kale, chopped (I used Red Kale: Chou Frise Rouge)

2 tablespoons of olive oil

1 teaspoon of toasted onion herb blend (I used Victoria Gourmet) you can use any flavors you like

6 tablespoons of Hummus salad dressing (I used Trader Joe’s Hummus Salad Dressing)

1/4 cup of kalamata olives

1/4 cup of cheery tomatoes

Clean kale and remove the stems and center ribs and discard.  Cut into 2 inch strips. Place in a large bowl and toss with olive oil and toasted onion herb blend.  Transfer to a large skillet and saute on medium heat for 10 minutes or until kale has wilted.  Remove from heat and allow to reach room temperature.

Once cooled, place a a heaping cupful onto each plate, drizzle with hummus salad dressing, add olives and tomatoes.  Serve as the main dish or as a side with chicken, fish or steak.

Here’s to spring, beautiful weather and getting healthy. Cheers!

  1. Salad looks great and is making me want to venture forth and try Kale….must be the only one on the planet that hasn’t eaten it yet!
