What Can I Do With a Whole Lot of Kale?

Good Questions

Q: I have a mess of kale from the farmers market, and I don't know what to do with it.

I've made kale chips, and sprinkled them on white bean puree on pizza, but that's all I've got. I need some non soup/stew late summer kale recipes. Thanks!

Editor: Oh, this is a question I like! I am huge fan of kale salads; the meaty texture of kale holds up well with heavier dressings and mix-ins. It's also wonderful with a fried egg (see Megan's kale toast below). Here are a few of my favorite kale recipes:

Kale Slaw with Peanut Dressing (pictured above)
Artichoke, Kale & Ricotta Pie
Kale and Ricotta Salad from Kim Severson and Gourmet
Kale Salad with Apricots, Avocado & Parm
Fried Egg Kale Toast from Megan of Feasting on Art

Readers, what are your favorite kale recipes?
