wilted kale, white bean & blue cheese salad

January 10, 2011 § 5 Comments

this salad is the bomb.  a million thank yous to my beautiful cousin for directing me to her friend’s food blog (http://thefantasticmrfeedbag.com/) and to all of this yum. 

ok, kids.  here goes:
1 bunch of curly kale, de-stemmed and torn up (i used purple kale, because that’s what they had)

1 small head (yes, head) of garlic, diced

1 can great northern beans, drained & rinsed

2 oz danish blue cheese, cut up into small cubes (or, if you’re lazy like me, crumbled blue)

1 plus cup of wine, red or white (I used sherry, and really liked the extra flavor)

saute garlic in a splash of olive oil over med-high heat.  when just brown, add a generous splash of wine to deglaze.  add kale and another splash of wine to make with the steaming.  cover and steam the kale until it begins to wilt, appx. 5 minutes. add beans and cheese, cover, and cook until cheese begins to melt.  remove from heat and mix with tongs.  eat and find yourself feeling remarkably happy.
