Kale and Roasted-Potato Salad

Kale and Roasted-Potato Salad (Adapted from Martha Stewart)

1 1/2 pounds fingerling potatoes, sliced 1/4" thick
1 red onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
salt and freshly ground pepper
1 pound kale
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh grated lemon zest
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 large clove of garlic, thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a large bowl, toss together potatoes, onion slices and 1 tablespoon oil - season with salt and fresh ground black pepper. Spread mixture in a single layer between two baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Place into the oven and roast, flipping the potatoes and onions over halfway through, until the potatoes are brown and crisp, about 40 to 45 minutes.

Trim kale and slice leaves into large pieces - rinse well and drain, leaving some water clinging to the leaves.

In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, lemon zest and mustard.

In a large skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high. Add garlic - cook, stirring constantly, until lightly golden, about 2 minutes. Add kale and cook, stirring occasionally, until wilted, about 4 to 6 minutes. Stir in mustard mixture, tossing well to coat - cook just until heated though. Season with salt and fresh ground black pepper. Remove from the heat and toss with the roasted potato mixture to serve.

Makes about 4 servings.

  1. I'm guessing 1 lb kale? And would Tuscan Kale work interchangeably? Thanks Joe, looks fabulous!

  2. Anon - that is correct. No idea how that got passed me! I imagine Tuscan would be fine.
