  • 3 lbs kale washed, tough center stems removed, leaves coarsely torn
  • 1 TB extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups red onion thinly sliced
  • 1 6 oz package Canadian bacon diced
  • 1 tsp garlic minced
  • 1 TB cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  1. Cook kale in a 6 quart pot of boiling salted water (4 quarts water, 1 tsp salt) for 7-8 minutes. Use a pair of tongs to push kale down into the water so it will all fit at once. Drain in a colander, pressing out excess water, and reserve. 

  2. Heat oil in the same pot and sweat onion over medium heat, stirring frequently, until soft (~10 minutes). Add Canadian bacon and cook for 3 minutes to lightly brown. Stir in garlic and cook 1 minute. Add kale and use tongs to mix in with onions and bacon and thoroughly heat through. Stir in vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper and serve.
