Yum Yum: Kale Salad

This has become one of my favorite salads.  It is so good and everyone I make it for requests the recipe.  So easy and good for you.

1 head kale
pine nuts (about 1/4 cup)
shredded Parmesan cheese
salt & pepper
1/8 cup lemon juice
1/8 cup olive oil

Toast the pine nuts by putting them in a non stick skillet.  Keep an eye on them so they don't burn and shake them around.

Make the dressing by combining the lemon juice and olive oil along with salt and pepper to taste.  I have a great salad dressing mixer that I make this in but you could put it in anything and shake it up.

Hand shred the kale and mix all other ingredients.  the dressing should coat the entire head of kale.


  1. That looks good! We just discovered kale this past winter. Now we always have a bag in the freezer. You're welcome to visit my blog post about healthy eating resources. :)
