"Recipe suggests using fitz kale as well as lacinato kale, but if kitz kale is unavailable to use all laminate kale. It also uses a variety of baby beets -- so you can also use whichever are available -- it is pretty using the different types though. Recipe source: Best of Cooking Light (2015)"

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Remove white papery skin from garlic heat (do not peel or separate cloves). Wrap head in foil. Arrange yellow beets on a large sheet of foil; wrap tightly. Repeat procedure with red and striped beets. Bake garlic and beets at 350 degrees F for one hour or until beets are tender; cool 10 minutes. Separate garlic cloves; squeeze to extract garlic pulp. Discard skins. Combine garlic pulp, oil and next 6 ingredients (-pepper) in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Place kale in a large bowl.

Heat a skillet over medium heat and add bacon. Cook 5 minutes or until crips, stirring occasionally. Increase heat to high. Stir in garlic mixture; remove from heat. Pour hot bacon mixture over kale, tossing to coat.

Peel beets; discard skins. Cut beets in half and arrange over kale mixture.
