Grilled Kale Salad

We have declared our favorite dinners in the Presidio when the 3 of us hover over our mini Weber grill, and the food goes from the fire directly into our bellies. Very cave man/woman/toddler and a sight you wouldn't see in Nana's house. Here is a recipe that often accompanies the carnage- it is inspired from Michael's days at Back Forty.
Grill a bunch of lacinto (dino) kale
throw into a bowl with
*juice and zest of one lemon
*olive oil
*salt or gomasio
* 1 clove smooshed garlic
*a squirt of anchovy paste

toss and ingest
