Serves: 4 Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 cups very finely chopped or slivered curly kale or Russian kale (remove from the stem, leaves only)
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped toasted almonds
  • 1 orange, peeled and sectioned (you can also substitute a sweet apple, like a Fuji or Braeburn)
  • 1 ounce sharp Cheddar cheese, cut in 1/4-inch dice
  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate seeds
  • 3-4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  •  Salt to taste
  • 1 very small garlic clove, finely minced (I use my microplane, very carefully, to mince the garlic)
  • 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
  •  

Instructions

1

Combine the kale, almonds, orange, Cheddar and pomegranate seeds in a large bowl.

2

In a measuring glass, whisk together the lemon juice, salt, garlic and olive oil. Add to the salad, and toss well. Sprinkle the Parmesan over the top, and serve.

Tip: This salad greatly benefits from tossing with the dressing about 15 minutes before you serve it. The acid in the lemon juice breaks down the kale making it more tender.
