What exactly is massaged kale?

Kale is a hearty winter green that holds up well in soups and stews. But it’s also wonderful as a salad if you give it a three-minute massage. With a little oil, this tough green leaf shrinks in size and the texture becomes soft. You can try this Massaged Kale Salad with Lemon and Parmesan, an easy side dish.

To make the eggs for this salad, I’ve been making perfect soft boiled eggs in the instant pot, but hard boiled eggs would also work fine if you prefer a firmer yolk.

  1. Very delicious! I just made one serving which was easy to figure out. I added extra greens, we grow our own and I added spinach, mizuna (a type of Japanese mustard green) and a garnish of broccoli micro greens on top. I used balsamic vinegar which the sweetness paired well with the savory kale and bacon. I used Open Nature No Sugar Added Uncured Bacon (Kroger exclusive and W30 compliant). I did not use tomato as I dont digest them well and I used half of a medium avocado instead. Worked out great. This is a great breakfast salad, it is going to be in my breakfast regulars. Thank You!

  2. Hi Gina, where do I find the WW Personal Points for this recipe?

  3. This is, by far, one of my favorite recipes on this site. I put it on my meal plan whenever I can. I usually heat the kale for a minute in the pan after cooking the bacon (poor out the fat first). I almost always end up wanting more kale by the end of the sale.

  4. First of all, let me tell you I love your recipes. I follow you everywhere! This dish is amazing. I just made it for the second time as our lunch and it’s so good! I tweak it a little, and we love it. It’s very filling, with lots of crunch. Thanks from a big fan 🥰

  5. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this – but I was so pleasantly surprised! I feel so good eating fresh greens for breakfast! Thank you so much for all the ideas – your weekly meal plans help me grocery shop more seasonally, stay on track with my health goals, eat a wider variety of foods, save $, and TRY NEW THINGS like this breakfast salad. My only addition was a few leaves of fresh basil sliced thin. I maybe went a bit over board with the salt – the bacon adds quite a bit – something to watch out for.

  6. We didn’t have red wine vinegar so I made it with balsamic vinegar-it was super delicious. A big hit with my children too! 

  7. This is delicious!  I followed the instructions for the massaged kale recipe.  Yummy!!

  8. I never thought I would be making kale for breakfast by choice, but I’m glad I did!

  9. Great, healthy, tasty easy breakfast. Easier if the kale is prepped ahead of time.

  10. So easy, so good! The eggs came out perfect according to your instruction. I added bleu cheese to make this a “cobb” blt salad. Mmm! Thanks for the great recipe.

  11. Thought I only liked kale as a cooked vegetable. I was wrong! Found Lacinato Kale at Whole Foods, massaged it per the recipe and loved it with the other ingredients! I’ve made this recipe about 4 times now – delicious! I even learned to make a pretty good soft-boiled egg which I’ve always liked but could never accomplish (my first attempt at this salad yielded hard boiled eggs but it was still good). Someone shared this recipe with me and I’m glad she did!

  12. I love this recipe but I put this in the WW recipe builder and got 7 points per serving. It showed the olive oil as 3, avocado as 3, and bacon as 7. Am I doing something wrong?
