Recipe : Fresh Kale Salad

I pulled this recipe out of a magazine, and gave it a trial run last night. I never thought I would enjoy it as much as I did! It was a great (new) way to eat Kale, which is full of beta carotene, vitamins K & C, lutein, and calcium. It was a great accompaniment to the lamb stew I threw together last night, a recipe on that to follow!

What You'll Need:

1 Bunch purple kale (the long stemmed kind)
1 or 2 large lemons
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
Hard cheese to shave on top

How You'll Do It:

1. Cut the leaves cross-wise into thin strips
2. Coat with olive oil
3. Squeeze lemon juice on top
4. Toss with a little salt and pepper
5. Shave a hard cheese on top

It's so simple, but truly delicious.

Kale is very easy to find at farmer's markets year round in the Seattle area, as are hard cheeses. Click Here To find a farmer's market near you!
