Pierson High School, the seniors placed a whale on the hill. He looks like he's smiling. I was smiling when I saw the season's first strawberries (very early this year, because of our warm winter) at the Green Thumb. To mark the end of my week, I made a salad with the berries and some baby kale. Here is the recipe:
Kale with Strawberries and Goat Cheese
8 cups baby kale leaves
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
Ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups strawberries, stemmed and sliced
3 ounces fresh goat cheese, crumbled.
1. Place kale in a large bowl. Whisk together oil, honey, salt, and pepper to taste. Drizzle over kale and toss to combine.
2. Divide dressed kale among salad plates. Top each portion with some strawberries and goat cheese and serve immediately.
