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