  1. In a pot, combine 1/2 teaspoon salt and kale in enough water to cover. Let stand for 30 minutes. Drain the kale, leaving any water clinging to leaves.
  2. In the same pot over medium-high heat, warm the oil. Add the kale and cook, tossing occasionally, for about 5 minutes, or until wilted. Add the vinegar and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt. Toss.
  3. Serve sprinkled with the seeds. Pass additional vinegar at the table.
