About

This is a take on a wonderful salad we had at one of Tom Douglas’ restaurants. It’s incredibly simple, tasty satisfying and easy to make. Use either Lacinato or Dinosaur Kale for the best texture. You’ll like this salad so much, you want to make it nearly every day. Healthy and hearty, you’ll want it to feed it to everyone you love.

*NOTE: WE CALL IT “TAMED GARLIC”. IT’S THE MARINATED GARLIC YOU OFTEN FIND IN THE OLIVE BAR AT THE GROCERY STORE. IT HAS A LITTLE LESS BITE AND HOTNESS, THAN A FRESH GARLIC CLOVE, BUT EQUALLY DELICIOUS.
