My Favorite Salad from True Foods Kitchen!

Tuscan Kale Salad Recipe

Tuscan Kale Salad Recipe
Tuscan Kale Salad Ingredients
  • 4-6 cups Kale, loosely packed, sliced leaves
        of Italian black (Lacinato, “dinosaur,” cavolo nero)
        midribs removed
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • 3-4 T Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 cloves Garlic, mashed
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste
  • Hot Red Pepper Flakes, to taste
  • 2/3 cup grated Pecorino Toscano cheese
        (Rosselino variety if you can find it) or other
        flavorful grating cheese such as
        Asiago or Parmesan
  • ½ cup freshly made Bread Crumbs from
        lightly toasted bread
Tuscan Kale Salad Directions
Whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper, and a generous pinch (or more to taste) of hot red pepper flakes. Pour over kale in serving bowl and toss well. Add 2/3 of the cheese and toss again. Let kale sit for at least 5 minutes. Add bread crumbs, toss again, and top with remaining cheese.

**I literally make this salad several times a week!  I omit the cheese since I'm avoiding dairy and reduce the oil to 2 tbsp and increase the lemon a bit.
