Hold the kale as shown and remove the leaves from the stalks. Rinse well. Only use the leaves.
Squeeze the lemon.
Combine the kale with the salt, olive oil, lemon juice, and black pepper, and rub it until it starts to wilt.
Lastly, top with lots of Parmesan cheese and enjoy!
Another version: For a skin-tonifying salad, this one has some mashed avocado and tomatoes added. If using avocado, omit the cheese.
Story Behind this Recipe
I found some kale at a farmer's market. I tried stir-frying and boiling it, but something was missing. I tried using it in various ways and finally settled on this fresh kale salad. This salad is a standard dish in my home.
The flavor of the kale will change depending on the location and season, so adjust the amounts of seasonings accordingly.
