This Fresh Kale Salad is a go-to all year around- when I don’t have fresh Kale in the garden- I’m always sourcing it at the local Farmer’s Market (Yes- I go year round… gotta support those farmers)… I can even find Organic Kale at the local grocery store. Kale is one of the super foods- that provides so many essential goodies for health and wellnes.
Step 1- Prepare the Dressing:
Press a whole clove of Garlic
Squeeze a whole lemon
Add ½ cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Teaspoon Fresh Ground Pepper
1 Teaspoon Ground Pink Himalayan Salt
Mix together… and set aside while you prepare the kale
Step 2- Prepare the Kale
Cut, Break or Tear up about 4 cups of Fresh Kale –
You can use any type of Kale- I prefer Tuscan, Red Russian, or Redbor – but you can choose your favorite!
Sometimes I let the Kale sit in the refrigerator for a day or two- to wilt a bit and make it bit more tender…
Here’s a guide to different types of Kale and how to use them!
Mix the Kale into the dressing- and toss thoroughly
Step 3- Adding the Cheese toppings- YUMMMM!
Sprinkle with Grated, Shaved or Powder Parmesan Cheese –
Approximately ½ of a cup – Toss gently and allow to set out at room Temperature for about 20-40 minutes to allow the Kale to wilt slightly- sometimes I make it up in the morning for dinner that evening- with more coarse varieties of Kale!
Toss again and serve on chilled plates!
