This is such a great recipe! Everyone I’ve made it for asks for it. It’s really easy and super healthy.
– One Bunch Organic Kale
– 4 Organic Lemons
– 1/2 tbs olive oil
– pine nuts
– shaved pecorino cheese
– 1 clove garlic
– salt & pepper
1. Rinse the kale and cut into large bite size pieces
2. Squeeze the juice of four lemons into a small container
Add olive oil, chopped fine garlic, salt and pepper. Pour this dressing over the kale and mix it up. The lemon will begin to break down the kale a little bit, so it’s best to put it on about 30-60 minutes before serving.
3. Right before serving add the toasted pine nuts and pecorino cheese. Toss all together.
* The salad will keep if you refrigerate it and is actually even better the next day.
P.S. A little nutritional info about Kale:
Kale is considered to be a highly nutritious vegetable with powerful antioxidant properties; kale is considered to be anti-inflammatory.
Kale is very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin and reasonably rich in calcium.
Kale contains sulforaphane (particularly when chopped or minced), a chemical believed to have potent anti-cancer properties.
