Marinated Kale Salad
Prep Time
Total Time
Make this salad at least an hour ahead to give the kale time to relax and absorb all the great flavors.
Recipe Type: Salad
Yield: 6 side servings
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard (I like whole grain)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 small bunch lacinato kale, roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan
  1. Whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, and mustard in a salad bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add the kale and toss with your hands, massaging the vinaigrette into the kale.
  3. Add the parmesan and toss to fully mis it in.
  4. You can serve the salad immediately, but it's even better if you let it marinate (keep it in a container in the refrigerator) for at least a few hours.
Gluten free, Kosher dairy, Vegetarian Parve and vegan if you omit the cheese.
