Raw Kale Salad from Dr. Weil

Raw Kale Salad

Everyone seems to be touting the health benefits of kale. I’ve used it in soups before but I think that’s about it. I decided to try a raw kale salad after a friend mentioned how good it was and went looking for something simple and easy.  This one from Dr. Weil is about as easy as it gets I think!  I simplified it even more by leaving out the shaved Parmesan as it tasted good to me without it.  The simple vinaigrette goes together quickly.  I wish I had some leftover as it’s supposed to be even better the next day but two of us ate this all up last night.

If you happen to have a pomegranate around, add some to the salad. They’re fantastic!

Raw Kale Salad from Dr. Weil

  • 1 bunch kale, ribs removed and leaves cut into 1/4" shreds
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (plus more if you want shavings)
  • 1 Tbs toasted breadcrumbs (I used Panko)

Wash and slice up the kale.

In a salad bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, red pepper and salt.

Add the kale to the bowl and toss together.

Let the salad sit at room temperature for 30 minutes while you fix the rest of your dinner.

Toss in the grated cheese and breadcrumbs just before serving.
