Kale and Kisses and Valentine  Wishes

It’s kisses one misses.

You can get a lei —any day.

But sweet kisses one misses.

Want to keep your honey heart-healthy and fit? “Super Foods” kale and cranberries transmit… a heart-healthy treat. Need I repeat?

“We are what we eat!”

Kale & Kisses (tomato  and cranberry)

3 cups of chopped kale, remove stems, chop fine,

½ cup dried cranberry halves

½ cup raw pine nuts

2 medium tomatoes, remove pulp and seeds, use only the outside skins, slice in 8ths, wrap and set aside.

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

½ teaspoon sea salt

⅛ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

In a large bowl place kale, cranberries and pine nuts. In a small bowl whisk lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and cayenne for dressing. Pour over kale mix in bowl and toss to combine. Refrigerate at least 15 minutes. Add tomato slices and toss again. Serve.

“It doesn’t matter where you get your appetite, as long as you eat at home.”

  1. Sweet and fun poem I like it. I didn’t know you could eat Kale without cooking it. I always use it in soups, I’ll have to try it. Love the photo too.

  2. This post is just what I needed. I enjoy kale, but have only used it in soup. I’d love to eat it fresh. I will definitely attempt this salad! And I’ll pass on the recipe to a friend, who’s been looking for uses for kale.

    Thanks Adagio!

    • Tony, thanks for paying such close attention!!! The photo, but it’s not porn, is from a vintage poster advertising “Flesh and the Devil” (1926) an MGM romantic drama silent film. It stars Greta Garbo and John Gilbert, directed by Clarence Brown.
      I love Greta Garbo! And he’s kissing her.

      “In 2006, “Flesh and the Devil” was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”. Wikipedia
      Hope you liked the Kale.:) Adagio
