The first thing I noticed was that it wasn't organic. The last organic bunch I'd bought was filled with- well, you know, so I wasn't too upset about that. But then I noticed that it said "greens for cooking" and "cut, cleaned & ready to cook". Why no raw love? Perhaps because the kale leaves had been chopped with the stems? Nevertheless, I washed the leaves thoroughly (only one or two cootified pieces per bag) and made my salad using Domestic Affair's dragon dressing, as recommended by Food Feud.

Perhaps the bagged kale would be convenient for cooked recipes, but I'm still not sold on the taste; I'm going to stick with the fresh variety, de-stemmed. Please note: try this at your own risk. Sharing is not recommended; this kind of kale could turn someone against it for good! I wonder if I am the only one who has had such a negative experience with bagged kale, or am I simply the only one who has ever purchased it?
