Ever get tired of plain ole romaine? Yup, I do. I try to rotate lettuce for salads because the same kinds of salads get boring to me. I try to do baby spinach,frisee and now my new favorite salad item KALE!!!
If you haven't tried it yet, kale is a really delicious and versatile green. You can blend it into shakes,saute it like you would spinach or use it as lettuce for a salad!I especially love kale in this salad because it stands up to the tangy lemon dressing.
This salad is super simple to prepare. I chop and wash/dry the kale the night before I need to use it. I discard the stems because they are very tough, but you can keep them on if you want. You can even make the dressing the night before. I top this salad with green apple and Parmesan cheese. Yeah, I know. Sounds a bit weird. It is so delicious. This salad is super tangy and delicious so if you have not tried kale yet get onboard the kale train!
