OK, I hated kale at first because I didn't know how to prepare it. You have to get rid of the stems and do somthing to balance out the bitter taste. I steam it, mix it with minced garlic (from a jar, so it's not too strong), a little fresh lemon juice and sea salt, sautee some onions and add in, and even my "i hate vegetables" husband likes it. I often then put some hummus on a gluten free tortilla and then have a couple kale tacos. Kale really energizes me. It's possibly the most nutritious food you can eat. I'm glad I finally found a way to eat it that actually tastes good

Fajitas with wilted kale, black beans, roasted sweet potato...sprinkle some cheese & avocado slices and it makes a delicious meal!

I had never eaten kale till I made some kale chips using one of the many recipes that I was seeing online last year....They tasted so bad that I don't know if I will ever eat kale in another form again!

Well tried, but some things are just not really edible.

I don't know why, but my 3 year old LOVES kale steamed and buttered. He won't eat any other green.

Its one of the few leafies I don't really care for. It's ok enough in a soup but I just dont like it. Spinach is where it's at for me (mustard & dandelion greens aren't bad either).

Dark green - healthy. One can make a variety of good tasting food and even the chips!

Kale somehow became the poster child for, "Look how healthy and virtuous I am!" That being said, I love the stuff, especially in smoothies or roasted with brussel sprouts, cauliflower and garlic. Yummy, satisfying and, yes, virtuous. http://lessonsfromtheendofamarriage.com

I prefer Chard.

Chard makes very good chips, just like kale. They get an almost potato chip-like flavor.

Kale is a great bulky green. I can make a big salad, add the dressing, and it will hold up in the fridge for several days, unlike iceberg or spinach. Also, kale chips.

It's crunchy, robust, rarely limp, and a gorgeous color.

Kale is an afterthought. No one should actively buy kale unless one is buying it to compliment a dish. A kale centered meal equals fail.

I eat things like kale all the time for an entire meal. My diet is very basic and for me, an apple and a little peanut butter is a meal.

That is a real, honest, meal. Kale though? C'mon. Give me endive at least. Spinach. Kale is a small step away from iceberg. Can you tell that I have a thing against kale? I need therapy.

Agreed-on a recent trip to NYC, I went to a great restaurant for brunch in the West Village called Joseph Leonard and ordered a world class kale salad. It had a range of ingredients that kept it from tasting too "green".
