Hi, I'm from Croatia, trying to eat vegan-style and this particular salad recipes with kale got me interested. Thing is, most of the recipes and groceries you use - cannot be found here. But, kale - there is plenty of that here. Although I do not live near the Adriatic Sea, still I can grow kale - it's considered "low-grade" food, in Dalmatia, people used to live thru the whole winter on kale and chickpea soup. I leave it in the ground even during the winter, so you just take the snow off the leaves and you got - "fresh" kale. Now, the problem - if you have any suggestion. Kale that is grown here is a "wild" sort, it isn't curly and the leaves are rather thick and "nervy". I saw you recipes for kale salads and I was surprised you haven't cooked or boiled it or something like that. I presume that the marinade you used, with lemon juice and the the whole process of marinating and mixing it with your own hands does the trick with the kale you used. I tried the same with the kale I have, but it was still "too raw" and bitter and , quite honest, not much of a treat. So, are there any other methods that can be used for such stubborn types of kale, maybe some special type of marinade or something else, because I would like to enjoy some uncooked, dark-green vegetable salad during the winter. Thanks, Goran
