Eat your greens. We’ve all heard that eating plenty of leafy greens throughout the year is a healthful addition to any diet. Kale is available all winter long, so it often takes center stage in my kitchen during cold weather months. But how do you make kale taste good? Hmm… To tell the truth, I sometimes have trouble convincing my husband to eat kale, so, when I first prepared this creamy, all-purpose sauce, I rejoiced. He loved it! This satisfying walnut based creation stands in perfectly for dairy based “cream” sauce and it works well on steamed broccoli too, or as a tasty salad dressing.
