Heather at Real the Kitchen and Beyond inspired me to make this recipe after reading her post for making Easy Bruschetta on the road. I looked around and thought “well yep I can do that, but can I make it a salad?” Sure thing! I just added a little fresh kale, some croutons and I came up with a salad our whole family enjoyed. I think you’ll enjoy it too.

  • 1 TBSP good olive oil
  • 1 market bunch kale, about 10-12 leaves
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves

  • 2 large tomatoes, the best you can find
  • 2 cups croutons
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste


  1. put the garlic in a mixing bowl
  2. add the vinegar and oil and whisk briskly
  3. tear the stems out of the kale and trim the basil of any stems
  4. then chop or tear kale and basil leaves into bite sized pieces
  5. add to the oil mixture and give it a good rub with your hands for about 30 seconds
  6. you're not trying to reduce it to a little pile of kale but rather just massage it and break it down a bit
  7. core and then chop the tomatoes into bite size pieces
  8. stir the minced onion(if you're using it) and the chopped tomatoes into the kale, toss to coat
  9. taste for salt and pepper and add it as needed
  10. at this point you can stop and refrigerate until about 5 minutes before you're ready to serve your salad
  11. when ready to serve toss with the croutons and let it rest about 5 minutes then serve
