My first and only experience with kale was eating it in a high school production of Anne Frank. Apparently, all they ate was kale & potatoes, but since it was a high school production, the food we ate on stage had been cooked, but was not warm. Cold boiled kale. Thankfully I had many lines and managed to avoid eating almost anything on my plate, but I did try it once.

In a related story, I have never liked wilted greens. :-)

Kale might be in the organic salad mix we get from the grocery, but it's probably best if I don't *know* that.

I like kale salad because it doesn't wilt. Haven't learner how to cook it well.

I am familiar with kale, but dislike it.

What he said. It is easily available in the grocery store.

Take kale, cut up and get rid of hard stems. Spread olive oil on a cookie sheet, spread kale on cookie sheet, drizzle oil over kale and then kosher salt. Bake in 350 over for about 10 minutes until it gets darker and turns crispy. KALE CHIPS! They are yum.

I'd mainly been exposed to curly kale as a garnish at a restaurant before getting a farm share. Now we get various kinds (Dinosaur kale!) from our farm share, and I love it. I got a little over-kaled last year because we got it week after week, but I really do like it.

J. cuts the curly stuff up (minus ribs) and adds it to his salad mix. I prefer it cooked. I like the "kale chips" recipe posted above my comment. I also like it in egg dishes, like frittatas.

Mostly I use KALE as a Scrabble word.

I could be a raw foods person. Depending on the type, I do like my kale cut up into a salad. I find most steamed/cooked/fried greens grouse.

"type" of food?

(Link)
I voted no not because I don't think it's commonly consumed (I think it is fairly commonly eaten), but because I'd never think to refer to it as a "type of food". That makes it sound like a good category, or some diverse set of foods linked by a common characteristic.

Love kale, but I have been no-bullsh*t warned by my GP that some people think it's bad for those with thyroid damage, like me, so I won't take the chance.

Heh, I am reading the book from which your screen name comes (I presume) right now. :)

Most goitrogenic foods are less problematic for thyroid patients if they're cooked, not raw. This is one of the best, most balanced articles I've read on the subject, if you're interested in more info:
