This salad is an absolute WIN!!!
My sister made this for me years ago, and It was love at first bite!!
It’s super easy to make and it’s a great way to get in your dark leafy greens. It also has added protein from the almonds and the cheese, and healthy fats from the olive oil.
This salad makes a great side for any dish!
This is not an exact science- so It’s more of a taste & test as you go. If you want to add a little more cheese- go for it- if you need a little more lemon- give it another squeeze- More olive oil- drizzle it on!
But I’ll share with you the foundation and then you can go from there!
Let’s get started
What you’ll need:
-1 bag of Kale or 2 bunches of kale
-1/2 large lemon- or 1 small lemon
-2 cups ish sliced almonds
-1.5 ish cups of shaved parmesan cheese
-1/4 ish cup of olive oil
-Salt, Pepper & Garlic to taste
A Few Tips:
-For the best results really massage kale with a little olive oil, and break it down, so the kale softens.
-It’s best to make this salad ahead of time, and let it sit in the fridge and let the flavors infuse overnight!
How to Prepare:
-After the kale has been massaged with a little bit of olive oil it’s ready to go
-Sauté almonds on medium heat for about 5 minutes- just brown them up a little bit
-Add cheese, sautéed almonds, the lemon juice, and the rest of the olive oil to the kale
-Add in Salt, Pepper, & Garlic
-Mix it all up & Enjoy!!
