Salad Savoy Chips

by inspiredrd on January 25, 2011

If you haven’t jumped on the kale chip bandwagon yet, you’ve probably at least heard of them.  I love kale chips.  They take a sometimes hard-to-swallow vegetable and turn it into crispy salty melt-in-your-mouth goodness.  Salad savoy is a relative of kale and is packed with vitamins A & C, calcium and iron.

Because we received 3 bunches of salad savoy in our co-op basket this week, I have had the chance to try it a few different ways.  Last night, I added it to a shrimp stir-fry.  Tonight, I will use it raw inside of our fish tacos.  But this afternoon, I wanted to roast it kale-chip style.

The salad savoy chips came out of the oven and did not disappoint.  Crispy, salty and beautiful.  I could barely get photos of them before the family gobbled them up.  Even the kiddos enjoyed them.

Salad Savoy Chips
Ingredients:
-1 bunch salad savoy (any color)
-1 Tbsp. olive oil
-1/4 tsp. sea salt

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Wash salad savoy and remove leaves from stems.  Toss leaves in a bowl with olive oil.
2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Lay salad savoy leaves in a single layer on the baking sheet, making sure that all leaves are open.  Sprinkle with sea salt.  Bake for 16 minutes.
3. Serve and watch them disappear!

    We just heard about these at a recent cocktail party. Must admit we were doubtful, but now must give them a try.

    I have seen this done with Kale before, now that you've shown it can be done with other veggies, I'm wondering if there are any other variations besides the salad savoy that you have tried?

    Just made these from the salad savoy that came in our BB basket. YUM! Though I might be the only one in the family that thinks so. I need to pace myself!

    Hey there – for a little healthful boost, you can use a dehydrator and dry the chips (use a little lemon juice, about a half lemon per two heads) at 115 degrees for 10-12 hours (overnight) and it will preserve all the natural enzymes in the salad savoy, while still resulting in a crispy chip – it also preserves the color, which results in a fantastically beautiful, tasty snack!
