Massaged Kale Salad (Super Easy!)
This massaged kale salad is simple, light and made with just a few fresh ingredients! It's a great side salad with enough flavor to hold it's own.
Servings: 4 people
- 1 bunch curly kale
- 1 lemon juiced
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 3 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 cup parmesan cheese shaved
- salt and pepper to taste
In a small skillet, heat the olive oil and add the minced garlic. Saute the garlic over medium heat for about 30 seconds. Set the garlic infused oil aside to cool.
Prepare the kale by removing the stems and cutting it into thin ribbons.
Place the kale ribbons in a large bowl and toss in the cooled olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
Massage the kale for two minute with your hands, or until the leaves start to wilt.
Top it off with freshly shaved parmesan and serve.
- Kale is a pretty durable green. You can store this salad for up to 3-4 days in a sealed container in your fridge.
- When it comes to juicing lemons, my little stainless steel juicer can't be beat.
