I had a kale salad the other day. I knew it wasn't going to taste good, just from the look of it. But I had to try kale at least once, because it's the new "in" food. Seriously, you can't check general news sites without seeing articles about kale and all the different recipes you should try. Whoever is marketing the stuff is doing a good job.
Anyway...where was I? Oh, right. I tried a kale salad, and it tasted horrible! It left a nasty aftertaste, similar to the taste of olives. Fuck olives.
Why not just use a regular lettuce, like mescalin or spinach or romaine? Or iceberg lettuce. Those are all fine options.
