Wash kale and cut into bite size pieces Cook in small amount of salted water (about 1/2" in pot) about 5-7 min. checking occasionally. DON'T overcook. Kale is done when it's tender to eat but still bright green. Drain and immediately cool in cold water, then drain. Mix with leaf lettuce and sliced cucumbers. Use your favorite dressing or just lemon juice and olive oil.
