Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Wash the kale, dry thoroughly in a salad spinner, and tear into bite-size pieces. Toss in a large bowl with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar, if desired. Rub the leaves to make sure each gets a coating of oil so they crisp up well. Oil a baking sheet. (*I forgot this step, and there was plenty of oil to prevent sticking without it).

Place the kale in a single layer on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with kosher salt to taste. Bake for 6 minutes, then stir and turn kale, and bake for 6-9 minutes longer. Remove crisp pieces as they are done to prevent burning and allow remaining kale chips to get even heat. (*in order to do a single layer, I needed two baking sheets. A single layer is important for crispy results, rather than steaming them. By using 2 sheets I avoided the need to remove crisp pieces as they were done, and the kale was crisp after about 9 minutes total).
