Potential. That is what I see when I look at something like a jar of sundried tomatoes. I love things like sundried tomatoes. The recipe possibilities are virtually endless. In my mind, I keep a list of things I want to try making featuring these flavor-packed goodies. I’ve already made some; including this super delicious sun dried tomato pesto. Mmm!

The recipe for this salad came to me this past June. I had just a few weeks prior given birth to Edward and a bunch of my siblings (when I say bunch, I mean it. There are nine of us total.) were coming through town, I was excited to say the least! I love having family over; especially when I get to cook for them.

Now, I know what some of you may be thinking: You just had a baby! They should have cooked for you! Well, I was very fortunate. We had many people bring us cooked meals right after Eddie was born. By the time I had all of these family visitors, I was ready to cook again! I looked in the fridge and the cupboards, and this salad simply assembled itself in my brain. And it was a hit!

It’s a go-to salad for us now! I’ve made it multiple times and it doesn’t get old. I have thrown in cannellini beans to round it out into a full lunchtime meal for myself as well as serve it along side a simple pasta like this one right here.

I note this in the recipe, but make sure you don’t skip the massaging of the kale step! It is important in tenderizing the leaves, making it much more enjoyable to eat by breaking down its tough cellulose. When you do this, the kale loses its bitterness, turns brilliant green, and tastes much more delicious!

For the croutons, I used my own homemade kind. You can find the recipe here. Store bought will work, but let’s be real; it will not tastes as good! 😉

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch kale, wash and torn with stems removed
  • 1 cup chopped sundried tomatoes
  • 1 cup chopped marinated artichoke hearts

  1. Prep the kale and place in large bowl. Pour the oil and marinade over the kale and massage into the kale using your hands. This tenderizes the kale making it much more pleasant to eat!
