George’s Famous Kale Salad

I’m really missing George. When I woke up this morning I listened to his voicemails. Just hearing his voice was soothing. Made me feel loved, reminded me to keep pushing along, allow the hurt to fuel me rather than cripple. George and I blogged together, it was something fun and silly. When I look back at the posts it’s like a blissful time iced over.

He used to make this Kale salad, and I dont really love raw kale but he was so proud of it, and for some reason I was wondering how to make it this morning. So I went back to and found it. Maybe I’ll slap it together soon enough.

Here it is, the recipe you’ve been waiting for…George’s Famous Kale Salad.
Now I know I have been promising this and I’m happy to share. As you may know, I practically live off this stuff. Julia was a little skeptical but now is on board. We try to eat 1-3 servings a day.

  1. For me it was pancakes. That husband of mine had a lock on crepes that was legendary. I was the cook but he was the pancake maker and like so much else, life – as well as pancakes will never be the same. Sending hugs today…..

      Thanks. Have you tried to recreate the crepes? I’ve never tried to recreate George’s dishes. He also made these molasses cookies that were unreal.
