Kale Salad

I never had a kale salad before. In fact, I tried cooking kale a few times and I wasn't too excited about the taste (except for the kale pasta with lemon and Parmesan). My sister, of Pinned and Paired, convinced me that this was the best kale salad ever. She was right. I immediately wanted more after my first serving and my husband, who won't eat spinach, loved this salad.

Serves 2

1 large bunch Kale, washed, dried, and leaves torn into bite size pieces
Salt and black pepper
Olive Oil
Lemon juice, freshly squeezed
Pine Nuts, toasted
Parmesan cheese, grated
Red Chili Flakes (optional)

In a large mixing bowl, add the kale and season as you would a salad with a little salt and black pepper. Drizzle in some olive oil and with your hands, massage the kale leaves very well until they begin to break down and soften. Add some freshly squeezed lemon juice, the raisins, Parmesan cheese, and toasted pine nuts. Sprinkle a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes, if desired. Toss all together and enjoy.

  1. Try it with dried cranberries instead of raisins to switch it up. You will love it!!
