So there is this new cafe in town that is so delicious. It used to be a custard place and they shut down over the summer last year to remodel and become what it is today. They use only farmers from around the area to support locally and the ingredients they use are always fresh. So, on to the kale salad that is UH-MAZING. It’s a little tangy and crunchy and, oh, so good. I knew this would be a recipe I could recreate along with the help of my beautiful momma who knows how to do just that. Here it is…
1 bunch of kale
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs ( toasted )
1/2 cup parmesan cheese ( for non-vegans )
Pull kale leaves off of the stem, chop finely and put in large bowl. Juice half of the lemon in a small bowl and slowly whisk the olive oil in. ( taste and add lemon and olive oil accordingly). You’re going for a light lemony dressing taste. Drizzle the lemon olive oil dressing over the kale and toss. Top with toasted panko bread crumbs and enjoy!
* If using the parmesan cheese, just add with the dressing and toss.
