Go-To-Kale Salad

One of my biffles is an amazing cook — even though she claims she hates cooking. She can easily throw together a five course meal for her family where *everything* tastes divine. Although she likes to experiment and try new recipes, she also has a set of ‘go-to’ recipes that she makes throughout the week. This is her go-to-kale salad. It is so good that this past week, I made it THREE times. So easy, and so delicious!





* 2 heads of kale, cut in ribbons

* 3 tablespoons (I added more, because well, why not) shredded pecorino cheese

* Crushed croutons

* 6 tablespoons olive oil

* 3 tablespoons of Meyer lemon juice

* 3 cloves of pressed garlic

* 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt

* 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes




* Cut the kale




* Put the cheese and crushed croutons on top of the ribbon kale


Cheese makes everything better. And croutons, too (shot before I put the croutons on).


* everything else is the dressing


Dressing (before it is shaken!)


* Mix dressing together with kale, and let it sit to soften the kale.


* Devour! SO SO SO GOOD!


I love eating this kale salad for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. It is now my go-to-kale-salad, too!
