 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   18       oz           Fresh kale
    2       ea           Garlic cloves, minced
    1       t            Salt
      3/4   c            Olive oil
 
   Wash the kale well in cold water & pat it dry.  Cut
   away the ribs & stem of the kale, leaving only the
   leafy greens.  Combine all the ingredients in a food
   processor & process to form a thick paste. Will keep
   in the refrigerator for 5 or 6 days. VARIATION: For a
   mellower & less robust flavour, blanch the kale in
   boiling water for 3 to 5 minutes. Serves 12 as an
   appetizer on crostini.
