We harvest this Red Russian kale while its leaves are still small, young, and tender.
Store baby kale in a plastic bag, in the refrigerator. Best eaten within a few days. Please note that we typically don’t wash the salad greens we pack for you unless they’re very dirty, because they store better unwashed. If you choose to wash your salad greens, invest in a salad spinner so you can be sure to get them truly dry. (A wet salad always disappoints.)
Baby kale is delicious, raw in salads or lightly cooked. Add it into a soup, pasta dish, or a risotto at the end of cooking. Because it is a sturdier salad green, it stands up to a bolder dressing like Caesar.
