Nutty Kale Slaw

The Recipe

1 bunch kale
1 Medium onion
1/3 c. cider vinegar
1/3 c. XV olive oil
1/3 c. natural peanut butter
1-3 tsp hot sauce
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 c. raw walnuts

Shred the kale into strips approximately ¼”. Halve the onion and slice thin. Use a mandolin for this if available.
In separate bowl add vinegar, olive oil, peanut butter, and hot sauce and whisk to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Combine mixture, kale, and onions and mix thoroughly. Cover and chill for at least one hour.
Toast walnuts and add to slaw just before serving.

The Story

We have been getting bunches and bunches of kale from our farm share this year. Love kale though we do, we are starting to tire of the few recipes we have and are dreaming up new ones. Andrew made this up, and now the kids ask for it every time we get kale.

The dressing gets a creamy texture from the peanut butter. We always have chunky peanut butter, so that adds additional interest. 

I can't tell you how well it keeps. We eat the whole bowl every time. I bet if you let it sit overnight, the kale will soften somewhat. If you end up with leftovers, let me know how they are!
