How to Massage Kale
After washing and drying your kale, remove the ribs/stem from each kale leaf. Tear or chop the kale into bite-sized pieces, then sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Next, pour a little olive oil in your hands and work your way through the kale, massaging the leaves until they darken in color and tenderize.
