A member of the cabbage family, kale is packed with beta-carotene and other nutrient-rich antioxidants. Try substituting this powerhouse vegetable for your usual salad greens, and serve alongside a comforting soup.
Very healthy recipe. Awesome taste, and very easy to prepare.
A few points should be noted:
- Usage of extra-virgin olive oil makes it much healthier (in comparison to other oils)
- I advice you not to use the Parmesan cheese, but another type of cheese which contains less fat
- Be careful not to exaggerate with the black pepper
This was the best lemon dressing I have ever made. EVER. Just add a clove of minced garlic and you will be amazed!!!! Amazed!!!!
This single guy loves this salad. Easy to make, and a great way to include Kale in the diet. My supermarket's bulk/organic section carries shelled, whole hazelnuts. I completely followed the recipie by blanching them for a couple minutes (google it, guys) then toasted them for a bit in the same pan. The hazelnuts do add a nice rich flavor, to balance the citrus and bitterness of the kale. I used a few short blasts of the coffee grinder to get the hazelnuts chopped, saving even more time.

Great recipe. We have been hooked on this salad for a while now and still cannot get tired of it.
Preparing this recipe is very fast and easy. The lemon dressing decreases the slight bitter taste Kale can sometimes have and the parmesan cheese and hazelnuts gave it delightfull textures. Best of all - the food finicky males in my house loved it as a healthy accompanyment to their grilled burgers. Suggestion - if you're not a fan of citrus, use lease lemon juice or add more ground black pepper. I found roasted hazelnuts at a local mediteranian cafe/market, which saved even more time.
