If you're unfamiliar with the term "chiffonade," you might think this recipe is fancy and complicated. But fear not: All it means is that the kale leaves are rolled up and chopped into thin ribbons. Not so difficult, right? There's really nothing to this recipe -- you just cook a few slices of bacon and sauté the kale ribbons in the drippings. Then crumble up the bacon, toss it into the kale with some blue cheese, and voila! A delicious (and fancy-sounding) side dish.
