Toasted Kale Salad with Soft Boiled Eggs + Sunflower Seeds

A quick trip to the oven gives this salad a crisp, toasty flavor.

I’ve never had much luck making kale chips. I think I tend to crowd the pan, and the oil usually prevents them from getting very crispy. So for this salad, I decided to dry toast a single layer of kale in the oven and the results were fantastic!

I also decided that I wanted to try to soft boil eggs for the first time. I erred on the side of caution and left them in the boiling water a little too long, so they ended up more like medium boiled eggs, but it still worked out really well.

The runny egg yolk spread around on the kale to add a little extra dressing. The tanginess of the champagne vinegar cut through everything beautifully.

I added a pile of strawberries to the side of my salad for a bright, colorful lunch.
