Recipe: Wilted kale with orange zest

Last night I made a delicious meal! The menu included pork sliders, polenta, wilted kale, and a farm-fresh salad. It was the perfect meal to share with friends on a cold spring night. I want to share the recipe for the kale because it was particularly good and so simple:

Wilted Kale with Orange Zest

1 Bunch kale

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

Zest of one orange

Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Remove ribs from kale and cut leaves into bite-size pieces
  2. Coat the bottom of a skillet with olive oil, heat at medium-high. Add kale when oil is hot.
  3. Add apple cider vinegar to the pan and cover until greens are dark and wilty. Stir occasionally to ensure that bottom isn’t getting overly cooked
  4. Remove from heat and stir in orange zest and paprika.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste.


Enjoy! b9939-img_1449
