I'm preparing a raw kale ceasar for a large group this weekend. I bought a few giant bags of kale at the farmer's market on Weds, and last night when I went to prep it, I realized that quite a bit of it had gone bad, most likely due to the heat and humidity in my apartment. I threw away the rotting leaves stems and leaves, salvaged the ones that still looked good, washed and dried them and now have them all in paper towel lined bins in the refrigerator. It seems to me that as long as these leaves stay fresh I should be able to use them on Saturday. But some of the people who helped me to do all of this still think it might be risky. Does anyone here have thoughts on this? Is there a real health risk, or is it just that the folks who smelled the rotting kale yesterday might find the thought of eating rest unappetizing?
