How to Make It

Step 1    

Remove the ribs and stems from the kale leaves. Rinse, and add the leaves to a pot with a 1/4 cup of water over medium heat. Cover and simmer until kale is tender but can still hold its shape, about 4 minutes.

Step 2    

Drain excess water from the braised kale leaves, and add to the bowl of a food processor. Add chiles, garlic, mayonnaise and salt and puree until smooth.

Step 3    

Add half of the pistachios and water to the mixture. Continue to pulse while adding the cilantro and second addition of nuts. Scrape the sauce into a bowl.

Step 4    

Adjust seasonings with salt and pepper. Garnish with cilantro leaves.

Serve With

Seafood, on meat, over tacos, or as vegetable dip.
