I made this cooked kale salad yesterday. This is how I made it:
First I put about a little over 1/2 cup of raisins to soak in a cup of warm water. I cooked the uncured turkey bacon (from Traders Joe's) in a braising pot till it was nice and crispy. Then I removed it and set it aside for later. I added a mixture of garlic, a touch of olive oil, smoked sea salt, fresh black pepper, dried sage and cayenne pepper to my stone mortar and pestal. I ground the mixture into a paste. I then added olive oil to the same pot I cooked the turkey bacon. I sauted
the paste in the olive oil then I added the raw kale that a roughly chopped. Mixed up the kale really good then added some water just about 1/2 cup and placed the lid on the pot. After the kale was cooked I let it cool. I added a dressing made of olive oil and lemon juice, then I added the pump juicy raisins. At the end I garnished with the chopped turkey bacon and served. Taste good warm or cold.
