    Combine these ingredients in bottom of salad bowl:
    1.5 tsp maple syrup
    2 TBS apple cider vinegar
    Pinch of salt and pepper
    whisk in 2 TBS olive oil
    Recipe works best with Dino or Lacinato Kale(the bumpy kind) but any kind will work.
    Strip out the main stem of 2 bunches of kale and give it a rough chop and toss into the bowl.
    Massage the dressing into the kale with your hands to wilt the kale and get all the goodness into
    Fold in 1 cup of corn either off the cob or frozen.
    This is a fail-proof way of getting kids to eat kale. It does to well made ahead of time and is also
    wonderful the next day for lunch!
