Summer Grilling

Summertime is here! The fact is that over half of us grill two or three times a week throughout the summer months. Grilling is fun and – most of us agree – just about everything tastes better hot off the grill. Let us put together a custom gift basket for Dad this year – full of all his favorite grilling spices, rubs and more.

Crispy Tuscan Kale on the Grill – by Seamus Mullen 
1 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
2 bunches Tuscan kale, stems and all, washed and spun dry
Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the grill to high or build a small fire in a charcoal grill. In a large mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, vinegar, garlic, and lemon zest and juice and mix well. Add the kale leaves. Season with salt and pepper and gently toss until kale is evenly coated.

When the grill is hot, carefully lay the kale leaves, as many as will fit, side-by-side in a single layer on the grill. In about 2 minutes the leaves will crisp. Turn them and grill on the other side for another 1-2 minutes. Repeat with the rest of the leaves.

Pile the grilled kale leaves in a big stack on a large platter or cutting board and serve them up.
