Grilled Kale with Black Garlic Dressing

Grilled Kale with Black Garlic Dressing

Spring has arrived which means it’s time to dust off the BBQ and start grilling all things. The grill is an easy way to transform your kale from soft and leafy to crisp and charred. Once grilled to the perfect level of crunchiness, toss it with a creamy and robust dressing made from our Black Garlic Avocado Oil Mayo. This dish is hearty enough to stand on its own or works well as a side for your favorite chicken or beef skewers.
