For an easy kale salad:
Start with 1 bunch green curly kale, leaves stripped from the tough stalk. Rinse leaves; chop very finely.
Drizzle olive oil over the kale, massage into kale with hands.
Toss with grated parmesan, 1 clove crushed fresh garlic, lemon juice or balsamic vinegar, and sea salt. That's it!
Chopped pine nuts, walnuts, or sunflower seeds add a nice crunch, if desired. Or dress it up with halved cherry tomatoes, carrot ribbons, crumbled feta, sliced peppers, roasted/sliced golden beets...sauteed mushrooms...whatever you desire!
