KALE SALAD

 

Aviary Photo_130436358335334618MMMMM…This salad is my FAVE!!! and I usually hate salads.  It’s got a nice bitter/sweet flavor that is just right.

Here’s How:

Ingredients -

1 bunch of Kale

1/4c Lemon Juice

1/4c Olive Oil

1/4c Nuts (crushed almonds or pecans work great)

1/4c chopped dates (or craisans work too)

Pinch of Salt and Pepper

1 TBS Honey (use less if this is too sweet!)

1/4c Pecorino Cheese finely grated.

Process:

Cut or peel the leaves off of the main center stem of each leaf.  Combine Lemon Juice and Olive Oil very well with a whisk.  Mix it in over the Kale and massage the sauce into the leaves.  Let sit for 5 min.  Toast nuts on the stove in a pan while Kale sits. (don’t let nuts turn black or they are burned! – I learned this one the hard way…overcooked my nuts!!!).  Allow nuts to cool.  Add craisans, nuts, salt, and pepper to the Kale.  Mix well.  Then drizzle honey over the whole thin; sprinkle cheese on top,  Mix and Serve!!!
