For this healthy side dish recipe, kale bundles are grilled and topped with an easy sauce. "Enhancing" store-bought barbecue sauce with tart (or sour) cherry juice to make a drizzle nudges this side dish into the speedy category.
Preheat grill to medium-high.
Stir together barbecue sauce, cherry juice, preserves and adobo sauce (or ground chipotle) in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on High until warm, about 1 minute. Set aside.
Divide kale into 4 bundles and tie each with kitchen string about 1 inch from the stem end. Brush the bundles with oil.
Grill the kale, turning once, until slightly charred, about 6 minutes total. Serve the kale drizzled with the reserved sauce.
