|Caramelized onions... yum.|
Wanting to bring you more than another massaged kale salad, I did something a bit different with the last of the dark leafy greens from my CSA! Inspired by the salad Elina bought to the Seder dinner hosted by Cara, I sauteed my greens and topped them with a host of goodies to create this awesome dish.
Sauteed Greens w/Caramelized Onions, Prunes & Goat Cheese
Alternatively, you could use this salad idea for your favorite green, say, spinach or massaged kale?
1-2T extra virgin olive oil
1 lg red onion, halved and very thinly sliced
8c chopped/roughly torn dark leafy greens (I used a mix of kale and beet greens)
1-2 small roasted beets, chopped (optional)
1/3c chopped prunes
1/4c chopped toasted walnuts
2oz goat cheese, crumbled
In a heavy skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, stir to coat the onions and cook a few minutes. Reduce to low and continue to cook until nice and caramelized. Add in greens and 1-2T water, stir and let cook until greens have softened. Stir in beets and prunes, then transfer to a plate and top with goat cheese and toasted walnuts.
Now that it's officially summer, what are you most looking forward to??
