Cozy Grilled Ham Steaks with Southern Kale Salad. A light family dinner that is big on southern charm!
Now, I try to be a good southern girl… often with little success. Growing up in a straight-forward Midwestern family, the concepts of being genteel and prim took second fiddle to hard work and direct honesty.
I’m ok with that. Yet now that I live in the South, I strive to achieve southern greatness in the kitchen, even if I’ll never achieve it in manner.
So when working with raw greens, I went with subtle southern flair. What’s more southern than ham, cornbread, and greens?
Grilled Ham Steaks with Southern Kale Salad is a light modern take on this deep south favorite.
I rubbed ham steaks with brown sugar, cumin and coriander to give them a smoky kick. Then grilled them for a couple minutes per side.
Next I toasted crumbled cornbread and roughly chopped almonds to provide contrast for the kale.
Finally I dressed the salad with a bright citrus vinaigrette made with orange zest, orange juice, honey, chive and almond oil.
The verdict? Grilled Ham Steaks with Southern Kale Salad is YUM. Double yum.
Yum with a southern twist, Ya’ll.
Salty, sweet, crunchy, zesty plate of Kale-icious yum!
Plus, there is much less guilt involved in eating Grilled Ham Steaks with Southern Kale Salad than most southern dinners.
