Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Rinse and dry kale. Trim and discard tough stems. Stack leaves, then cut across the leaves into 1/4-inch strips.

  • In an extra-large bowl combine kale, tomatoes, croutons, nuts, and the grated Parmesan cheese. Juice lemons over salad ingredients. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, then toss salad to combine. Sprinkle servings with the shaved Parmesan.


HOMEMADE CROUTONS Remove crust from a chunk of ciabatta or baguette. Tear the bread in enough pieces to equal about 1 cup. Transfer to a large bowl. Combine 2 tablespoons olive oil or melted butter with a small clove of garlic, minced. Drizzle over bread and toss to coat. Spread on a baking sheet; sprinkle with salt. Bake at 350°F for 9 to 11 minutes, tossing once halfway through baking time.
