Wilted Kale with Sausage & Walnuts

Wilted Kale with Sausage & Walnuts

I love kale & always enjoy cooking one of my favorite greens in different ways.  A few months ago I watched Emeril make a great looking wilted kale recipe.  Oooo...I was inspired to go right into the kitchen & I made it for lunch.  It was very tasty & it's been in my kale recipe rotation ever since.  I changed up his recipe to suit my cooking style ~ less oil & butter, regular toasted walnuts instead of walnut butter & I added sliced Trader Joe's Sun-dried Tomato & Basil Chicken Sausages ~ because everything tastes better with those sausages.  The way I make, it becomes a quick & simple meal ~ perfect for a light lunch or dinner.   Enjoy!
