Bright kale salad

Author Notes:

This is one of our favorite weeknight salads. You can replace the parmesan with ricotta salata and use any kind of nut oil (or none at all). Add roasted squash or toasted nuts for a little more heft.


Serves: 4


  • 1 bunch kale
  • Parmesan
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Hazelnut oil
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
In This Recipe


  1. Trim stem and any hard ribs from the kale. (You can do this with a knife or scissors.)
  2. Cut the kale leaves into ribbons.
  3. In a serving bowl, mix olive oil, nut oil, and lemon juice to make a simple dressing.
  4. When dressing is to taste, toss with kale ribbons.
  5. Squeeze more fresh lemon juice over the salad, add parmesan, and toss again.
