Elementary, My Dear Vegan: Kale Salad with Dressing

Hi everyone! The food for today’s “Elementary, My Dear Vegan” is one that didn’t end well for the person who ate it in S1E4 (“The Rat Race”)…

Holmes: I think there’s a good chance Peter Talbott was murdered.

Gregson: You think someone dosed his salad dressing?
Holmes: I think it’s worth exploring.

When the salad was briefly shown on screen, it looked like it might be kale, so I made the only-kale-can-save-us-now salad from Eat Like You Give a Damn. The dressing was amazing and super easy to prepare. I enjoyed the salad even though I’m not the biggest fan of raw kale; if I make it again, I might steam the kale a bit first.



Bonus quote from the episode:
Fowkes: We’d like to hire you and your, uh, associate.
Holmes: Bodyguard.

  1. I generally blanch my kale a little bit before making a salad because raw kale can hurt my tummy a bit. But I love kale salads once I've done this to it!

    1. Good to know that blanching helps; I'll give it a try next time! :)

  2. They say it helps to massage the kale; I don't know. I don't eat it often. I can't deal with raw broccoli and I blanch it to put in salads so maybe sometime I should try cooking the kale a bit. It feels strange to cook leafy greens for salad but kale takes so long to actually cook I guess it wouldn't really be cooked? Teach me your ways.

    1. I think the massaging helps with the texture, but it's more the taste of raw kale that I don't care for; I think the blanching is definitely worth a try! And I'm with you on not being able to deal with raw broccoli, haha! :D

  3. I don't typically like raw kale but I've had it a few times where it was good. A good dressing will certainly elevate a salad so much! I love your creativity, this theme is so fun! Hi Cringer!
