I’m into salads as you can tell, and this kale salad is so good and perfect for a springtime side dish. I like Russian kale since it’s always more tender than other varieties.
RUSSIAN KALE SALAD
Combine and set aside:
4 cups very finely chopped kale
Palmful chopped toasted almonds
1 apple, diced
Sharp cheddar cheese, diced, about 1/2 cup
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Salt to taste
1 very small garlic clove, puréed
5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Freshly grated Parmesan
Toss salad with dressing. Give it a shower of Parmesan.
Best made 15 minutes or so before you serve it. This lets the kale soften.
