Very simple but really good! We liked this one a lot. I added a few dried cranberries for garnish and color. I also used white onion since I had one I needed to use up. It's wasn't too hot or anything (the onion). Thanks for sharing.

Lovely combination - I love serving a "different" vegetabe and Kale is so often overlooked. I used 12 stalks of Kale, center stem removed. Then I cross cut it. I should have chopped it up a bit more it was a bit tough. I will use this recipe with baby bok choy too. Thanks gkwillow of a lovely side dish that will be repeated over and over. 21 Jan 16 I made the recipe again. Fresh produce at this time is extremly expensive and some frozen vegetables are reasonable - that was the case with Kale. I simply sauted the onions and apples, added the cider vinegar and took the kale right out of the freezer into the pan. Sauted for about 8 minutes until heated right through. It was delicious.19 June16 Kale from the garden, chopped fairly small. I do love this recipe
