Warm Kale Salad : Even Popeye May Have Appreciated This !

The cartoon character Popeye loved spinach ... and  I think he may also have liked this ... those dark green leaves of kale are similar to spinach! Some will say kale is a little chewier than spinach and I wouldn't argue with them, but it is a great low carb vegetable and this recipe makes it into " a crispy and very low-carb salad, ( 5carbs per serving) with some chewiness that goes great as a side dish to most meals." Those last few words from Anne Aobadia who created this recipe idea.

4 servings
2 oz. (60 g) butter
½ lb (225 g) kale
salt and pepper
¾ cup (180 ml) heavy (double) cream
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons olive oil
½ – 1 garlic clove, minced or finely chopped
3 oz. (100 g) blue cheese, feta cheese or other (flavourful) cheese of your liking

Instructions for this dish can be found here

Cheese, yes please! But I need to eat kale in a smoothie so I can't see it!
