Better with makeup

Kale.  A vegetable I endure, because I know it's packed with vitamins and is good for me.  But, the taste has always left a little to be desired.  A couple of weeks ago, my good friend KellyB had me over for what is always a tasty dinner.  On the menu, kale.  It was fantastic. Dressed up with lime and mint, it took away all of the bitter taste that has put kale on the bottom of my vegetable list.  With this recipe, it's moved to the top.  I've even planted some mint in my garden just for this recipe. Here's my rendition.  Enjoy...
3 (approx) cups chopped kale
1tbsp fresh mint
1 tbsp good quality olive oil
2 tbsp lime (I used concentrate)
Sea salt to taste

Steam kale until it is has just turned from crunchy to soft.  Toss with mint lime evoo and salt.  Enjoy!
