Author Notes: Snack food genius! A great way to eat your greens, these kale chips stand out from the rest thanks to a simple single ingredient: cider vinegar. It gives these veggie crisps a nice tang that balances kale's bold flavor. One Hungry Mama

Serves 4

  • 1 bunch kale, washed, dried & torn into 2" pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • salt
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Whisk oil and vinegar. Toss kale in the dressing until thoroughly coated.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place kale in a single layer and sprinkle with salt.
  3. Bake until crispy, about 10-12 minutes.

As addictive as my favorite vinegar & salt crips from the UK. Thanks so much!

I'll try this out soon since my husband makes gagging noises everytime I make a kale salad. I guess he just can't hack the chewiness. I'm looking forward to it!

These are wonderful! I flavored several batches as follows (all had either olive oil or sprayed on butter flavor oil) - curry powder (didn't like); cheese powder - the kind you sprinkle on popcorn (yummy); just salt (also yummy) and lastly, no oil and just a little lemon juice sprinkled on - great! And fat free too! Just don't over-do the lemon. If you have leftovers, they keep best in a vacuum sealed canister rather than a poly bag.

These look amazing! On my way to the farmer's market and I will add kale to the list and give these a try! Thanks.

This is my most favorite snack - I make it many times a week (sometimes a day) and my kids are HOOKED. Thank you!!

Here is another snack recipe a "Peanut Butter Banana Shake" that you will love. It is high in protein so if you are on a high protein diet like the 17 day diet it is a perfect meal for breakfast or a tasty snack.

these can be stored in an airtight container for a few days, right? assume no refrigeration needed...

This has become a favorite new snack at our house - never tried them with apple cider vinegar, though. They really taste like potato chips to me...

i made this the other week...and they came out great! i only used a light amount of oil, no vinegar, and a light dusting of the salt. they're great straight out of the oven, but don't stay crisp until the next day :C but thanks for an awesome way for me to eat my greens!

Oh Yay! I've made these before and loved them but thought they might be missing something..I looks like that something is vinegar, trying these as soon I i can dig myslef out of the snow and locate some kale.

I'm on the hunt for healthy snacks that still make me feel like I'm indulging. I'm definitely trying this one! Looks great!

This looks very inviting. I had a deep-fried kale garnish at a local restaurant that was tasty. Your recipe sounds easier and much more healthy. Thumbs up!
