Sides, Lunch


  • 2 small bunches red kale, stemmed and coarsely chopped
  • ¼ cup olive oil ((divided))
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 jar (12-ounce) marinated artichoke hearts
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • ⅓ cup red onion
  • 1 package (3-ounce) salami (Milano or Genoa), thinly sliced into strips
  • ¼ cup chopped pepperoncini
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

  1. Pour olive oil over kale. Season with salt and black pepper. With both hands, massage the kale 1-2 minutes or until it softens and shrinks by about 1/3.
  2. Drain artichokes, reserving marinade. Coarsely chop artichokes. Stir minced garlic into reserved marinade. Set aside.
  3. Toss kale with artichoke hearts, red onion, salami, pepperoncini and Parmesan cheese.
  4. Drizzle with reserved marinade as needed (you don't want it soggy). Splash with a bit of red wine vinegar to taste. Add additional freshly ground black pepper to taste.
