Massaged Kale with Slivered Almonds and Lemon-Garlic-Olive oil


  • 1/4 cup Lemon juice
  • dash salt
  • 1/4 cups extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic (peeled and crushed )
  • 1 bunch kale (destemmed and cut or torn into small pieces. Red Kale works too!)
  • 1/4 cups grated Parmesan
  • 2 cups sliced almonds (toasted)
  • fresh cracked pepper


  1. In a small canning jar or bowl, whisk lemon juice, a dash of salt, olive oil, and garlic. Set aside.
  2. Then wash, dry, and destem your kale. Tear or cut the leaves into small pieces, roughly 1 inch big.
  3. Put kale in a very large bowl and add almonds, cheese, and cracked pepper. Add half the dressing and massage the dressing into the leaves for about 1-2 minutes using two serving utensils. (Most of the leaves should appear glossy by the time you are done, if not add a bit more dressing).
  4. Have a taste and determine if it needs more dressing. Once you approve, serve and enjoy !
