It never ceases to amaze me thatyou can enter a group of ingredients into a google search and find a recipe!  I was thinking this morning that a kale salad would be great to have in the recipes today, and maybe it would be even better with the addition of oranges and fennel, low and behold there it was!

3 cups Kale, washed, dried and chopped

1 medium Bulb Fennel, trimmed and sliced thinly (about 1 1/2 cups)

1/2 cup Orange segment

1/3 cup Black Olives, pitted and halved

1 1/2 TB Olive Oil OR Walnut Oil

1 TB Lemon Juice

1/2 tsp Maple Syrup

1 TB chopped fresh Parsley

1 TB chopped Shallot OR use a little Onion from this week’s share

Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper to taste

Place the kale in a large mixing bowl.  Whisk together the oil, lemon juice, syrup, shallot, parsley, and a little salt and pepper (keep in mind olives add salt).  Dress the kale with about 2/3 of the dressing.  Massage dressing into the kale till it has wilted down considerably and is well dressed.  Add the fennel, orange and olive to the bowl.  Add remaining dressing and toss again to combine.
