Crispy Garlicky Kale Salad

Garlicky Grilled Kale

Adapted from The Kitchn.

For the salad:

1 bunch Kale, washed and dried

1 1/2 Tbs High heat Oil (say Grapeseed)

1/8 Tsp Sea Salt

1-2 Tbs Shaved Parmesan

For the dressing:

1 large Garlic clove,

2 Tbs Lemon Juice

1/4 Tsp Sea Salt

2 Tbs Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

Remove Kale rib/stem.  Place all trimmed Kale in a bowl and toss with high heat oil and 1/8 Tsp Sea salt until leaves are evenly coated.

Place Kale leaves flat on a charcoal or gas grill OR use a preheated grill pan.  Grill leaves individually until crispy and brown (30 seconds-1 minute) and once cool cut into bite sized pieces.

For dressing place garlic (chopped into a few pieces) into a garlic press or grate from whole using a microplane.  Combine grated/pressed garlic with lemon juice in a small bowl and add salt.  mix and then whisk in Olive Oil.

Combine dressing and kale and add parmesan if desired.  This dish has a smoky flavor and will keep for a few days if you keep the dressing separate and use as needed.
