80(ish)--- Strawberry & Kale Bruschetta

Hooray for strawberry season! One serving of strawberries (about 8) has more vitamin C than an orange.  And, well, we all know about the goodness of kale.  No need to beat a dead horse.

This sweet twist on bruschetta is the perfect appetizer to a lovely dish of grilled fish or veggies for spring!

Strawberry & Kale Bruschetta
Serves 8

1 1/2 cups chopped kale
~10 strawberries, stemmed and chopped
1 tsp olive oil
2 Tbsp champagne vinegar
1 1/2 Tbsp toasted pine nuts (use a nonstick skillet for toasting)
1 Tbsp chopped fresh chives
1/4 tsp salt

In a nonstick skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.  Add kale and salt and saute for 4-5 minutes, until tender.  Remove from skillet and set aside.

Add chopped strawberries to skillet and saute for 2 minutes, then add champagne vinegar.  Cook for ~4 minutes, until strawberries have softened and liquid is absorbed.

Combine strawberries, sauteed kale, toasted pine nuts, and fresh chives.

Serve over toasted baguette slices or pita chips.
