Ingredients/Directions

  • 1 bunch of organic kale, washed and chopped finely, sprinkled with a couple of pinches of sea salt, then “massaged” for 5 minutes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 Tbs fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup toasted pine nuts

  • Optional: 2 Tbs freshly grated parmesan cheese

Toss all of the ingredients together and Enjoy!

Special tip: If you let the salad sit at room temp for about 30 minutes prior to eating, it gets softer and even more flavorful.

Good eating!

    not silly at all and nope, not in the same family - it's more like spinach. still good for you, but not like kale.

LOVE the kale salad ! What about dandelion? It's bitter, but good for you, and I'm seeing it in the farmers market. Thanks!

this is an absolutely delicious change for Kale. I love kale and can eat it simply plain and steamed, but this adds a whole other dimension of flavors to Kale. Plus, my husband loves this recipe and can't wait for the next batch. Thanks Aviva - you're simply the BEST!

I've been buying baby kale -- more tender -- so I don't have to do the whole "massaging thing."
