Kale Chips~ This is SO easy and incredibly yummy!  Even children are guaranteed to love these.

* Preheat oven to 350°

* Using a sharp knife, slice away kale leaf from thick stem and cut into 2-3 inch pieces

* Brush kale leaves lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with salt (optional)

Other ideas for making kale chips: Put ripped up kale pieces in a 1 gallon plastic bag, mix 1 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar in a plastic bag.  Squeeze bag to distribute oil and vinegar evenly. Spread on a baking sheet and sprinkle with pinch of sea salt. Bake as you would above.
