Reviews forGarlicky Kale
"I make this recipe over and over. If my grown kids come by for a visit and there's any leftovers, they eat it up. I use green olives instead of ripe ones. the salty mixes well with the garlic and sweetnes of the raisins. Craisins work well also."
"A delightful combination of flavors--and several immunity-boosting ingredients."
